      Villain seems pretty average. A little nitty I guess, but only have < 200 hands.

      I have a lot of hands like this today. I guess I played it fine, really. By the book I guess. But I'm left wondering if I should try to get the guy all in by the turn? I figure that some guys (maybe not this one but more fishy players) will call nearly any turn if they are drawing and fold the river if they bust... So I wonder if I could make more money from these guys from adjusting my betsizing up to try to shove the turn? Or if that wouldn't be a good idea.

      Hi Knyght,

      Preflop: Considering we are in the blinds and we also had a limper we can easily make our 3-bet larger (this way we have a bigger pot on the flop and get bet bigger and get the money in easier on flop/turn)

      Flop: Dry flop so small cbet is fine.

      Turn: There aren't many draws that villain can have so we can continue betting to get value from Kx and some QQ/JJ. We can bet larger here like 0.65-0.7 or so

      River: I'd shove the river as played. It's very unlikely that he folds Kx there and he most likely folds QQ/JJ type hands.
