      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 83.56 BB
      Hero (SB): 169.04 BB
      BB: 104.08 BB
      UTG: 100.72 BB
      MP: 166 BB
      CO: 135.04 BB

      Hero posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has K:heart: Q:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to 3.4 BB, Hero calls 3 BB, fold

      Flop: (7.8 BB, 2 players) T:spade: 9:diamond: Q:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 7.44 BB, Hero calls 7.44 BB

      Turn: (22.68 BB, 2 players) A:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: (22.68 BB, 2 players) 6:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 17 BB, fold

      BTN wins 21.56 BB

      5 hands on him.

      I call preflop KQ because he is unknown and I dominate the range of BTN.

      Is it ok call flop on his pot size bet (looks like he wants to protect).
      Turn is the worst card for me, but he checks behind, and I dont see reason to bet river?
      He might also check behind with AJ, AQ, or two pair. So river easy fold? I win only against total bluff here

      I dont think river is that ez of a fold. He could bluff but i agree thst ppl usually bluff turn isntesd of check turn bet river and its common for ax to take this line when flush gets there on turn.

      I think call is not thst great. I actuslly prefer tanking really long on river and raising hge to rep the flush. He almost nv has it sfter cheking the turn.

      And i wuld play my flushes the same way if i did cc flop wih my flushdraws
