      24/18/2.1/8.8/22/400hands
      FT3b56%/call3b44%
      RFI from MP 41%

      OK spot to triple?
      or prefer giving up once called OTT? I figured he can still have some draws, Qx which will find it hard to call 3 streets or maaayybe 9x, TT JJ that call twice.




      BTN: $56.79 (227.2 bb)
      Hero (SB): $25.02 (100.1 bb)
      BB: $25.79 (103.2 bb)
      UTG: $33.41 (133.6 bb)
      MP: $40.84 (163.4 bb)
      CO: $25 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K J
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.75, 2 folds, Hero raises to $2.50, BB folds, MP calls $1.75

      Flop: ($5.25) Q 9 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.70, MP calls $2.70

      River: ($21.25) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $14.52 and is all-in, MP calls $14.52

      Final Board: Q 9 4 6 5
      Hero showed K J and lost (-$25.02 net)

      It looks fine to me.

      However, I don't cbet that often on this board and if the guy likes to bet IP vs missed cbet, I like check/raising your hand. The reason I don't cbet the flop often here is that middle stuff and Qx is huge part of such a player's calling range and you can't really expect him to fold QJ+ once he flops top pair and so many draws have missed. Barreling still makes sense to make him fold/not bluff you with hands like JT, 89, TT, JJ, A high flushdraws (flopped or backdoor) plus it's basically one of the best draws to bluff river with from a game theory perspective because you don't do it often and it has huge equity all the way.
