      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: What range do you expect villain to raise you with here?

      We block the NFD but based on his turn/river bet size he is very polarized. Either he raised a Qx hand or set/2p trying to keep you in (however I'd expect these to bet bigger on turn for protection).

      So based on the above I think we have a river call. What would you do on a blank river like a 2?

      Ok, so let's take that back a step.

      How does his range change on a 2 or a K.

      On the 2 would you call a larger bet as well or just 1/2 pot?

      1/2 pot is maximum ,I would have folded to more than that bet

      How about his range, how do you think it changes on a 2 or the K that came down?

      I wouldn't say they are both the same unless he valuebets the same on them.

      On a Kx people tend to check QJ/QT more often than on a 2. And of course KQ beats us now. However, on the K the range becomes more polarized.
