      Played with this in flopzilla and I realised that I am good pretty rarely and we split a decent amount and otherwise he has me beat (I can't think he raises many monsters early as he was a passive whale)

      Even on the turn my value bet can be too thin as again I am only beating 10% of his continuing range
      .

      What do you think ? :f_confused:

      I would usually go for 2 streets with this hand because indeed we don't beat enough of his weak hands. Our TP is just about as good as KQ when it comes to hands we beat. :)

      I think that makes it more obvious why we cannot get 3 streets of value here.
