      Hi!
      Villain unknown,
      I think PF is pretty standard vs unknown this deep?
      Not sure if I should bet turn once he checks twice to get value from QQ,JJ.

      My plan once I check back turn is to call river since I probably don't check back Ax twice so he can vbet worse maybe? or bluff river.

      Once he bet so big though I think I should fold

      BB: $75.06 (300.2 bb)
      UTG: $37.99 (152 bb)
      MP: $25.85 (103.4 bb)
      CO: $39.19 (156.8 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $63.44 (253.8 bb)
      SB: $26.32 (105.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K K
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.75, Hero raises to $2.25, SB folds, BB raises to $6.26, CO folds, Hero calls $4.01

      Flop: ($13.37) 2 A 2 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($13.37) T (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($13.37) 7 (2 players)
      BB bets $9, Hero calls $9

      Results:
      $31.37 pot ($1.56 rake)
      Final Board: 2 A 2 T 7
      BB showed A 8 and won $29.81 ($14.55 net)
      Hero mucked K K and lost (-$15.26 net)

      I play it the same way but check river :D . I expect him to bet air earlier and he'll check down QQ if he has it

      Hey Danny,

      You can 3bet to about 2.5-2.75 preflop as a default when 150bb deep imo with position. I mean this with your whole range of course.

      Postflop, A sucks because his most likely bluffing hand there is Ax imo. I have to say I am not too aware of 250bb deep dynamics here but calling IP is definitely +EV. I was considering a 5bet for value but only if you could flat vs a 6bet and if a 6bet is not a shove obviously. That's probably a bit too much given that you'd 5bet to at least $10.

      I would play the same as you here but I'm not thrilled about it. I expect to be about breakeven on the call because he will feel confident in value betting a hand like A6s for example imo. You do get a lot of information since he is a reg though and he will also be capable of bluffing a few combos like KQ, QJ some of the time IMO.

      I might consider turn bet to get thin value from JJ/QQ, make some gutters fold and be sure of free showdown. I also dislike his sizing here in the sense that it seems he is rarely bluffing while he also assumed we would bluff turn or flop if we wanted to. He knows we have QQ or KK here imo so it's hard to play great when our range is perceived correctly to be 6 combos.
