      I didn't really feel like c-betting on this board (I'd been c-betting like 92% of all flops at this table), I'd think if the opponent wants to get value out of me there he'd be betting a lot smaller, but I still didn't feel like calling. I've been having some trouble spots recently with people shoving me,
      in most cases what's the reason for people doing this? This is something I would rarely do for value.

      Some fish want to make max-value by overbetting. They hope you hit king, while they might have slowplayed full-house of flush.

      I'd cbet this, unless he is very aggressive. Some players fold quite easily on flops they miss, so this is good spot to bet.

      Hi sketchzr,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: There is value in a bet still. We often have the best hand and we still have redraws.

      I would fold the river as well. This is usually a hand that was trying to ck/raise but missed a chance and now it's looking to gain all the value lost. And since we need to be good about 50% of the time (a bit less) it's a fold.
