      I'd just slow down here on turn. If he is a station, he would go here with Kx and FD's at least, worse might fold on that turn. So ch/f turn and ch/f river..

      Hey Kaos,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Flop cbet is fine, for value but on the turn I think it's too thin. We no longer get value from many club draws and Kx still beats us. Only hands we get value from are random AcX and some Jx.

      I'd personally check back the turn and fold river. Maybe bet 1/2 if he checks river on non clubs.
