      fold, fold, fold, fold, SB calls 0.5 BB, Hero raises to 5 BB, SB calls 4 BB

      Flop: (10 BB, 2 players) A:spade: K:spade: Q:club:
      SB checks, Hero bets 5 BB, SB calls 5 BB

      SB shows T:spade: 5:club: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 14%, Flop 16%, Turn 9%)
      Hero shows K:heart: K:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Kings) (Pre 86%, Flop 84%, Turn 91%)
      Hero wins 205.4 BB

      65 hands, 52 VPiP, 3b 25, 4bet 2/2.

      I bet half pot, because I wanted to slowplay, and induce bluff.

      fold river? I got attachet to my KK set.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Why not cbet larger? Most of his calling range (if not all) will call a much larger bet. I'd like to bet small to induce if we know villain is aggro.

      Turn: Same as the flop, I want to maximize value and I'd bet larger.

      River: This all comes down to villain. We know that he'd probably shove flushes so can he do this with worse (bluff or value)? It would really come down to what he has done in the previous 65 hands but I'd most likely call as well (unless he has been super nitty).
