      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      What do we raise for value form here? Also, what's the plan for the later streets if we get called here? If the turn was Ks what's the plan? What if the turn was 6c?

      Best,
      Plamen

      1)Here is a mistake. Were a raise as a bluf vs their weak hands.
      My plan was to take the pot.
      2)I think on Ks we can keep barrel as a bluf.
      3)On 6c i would folded.

      Well, I don't like raising as a bluff here, neither.

      It's a common mistake - you check, somebody decides to minbet and you go for a raise.
      I personally made it a lot, then I was adviced to check how much I actually win using this line and the result was horrible.
      I think that people just don't give you credit according to your strange line and if you are not planning to bet 2 or 3 streets then just let this go.

      I think considering the size of the pot, we can think of calling here since we might even have the best hand.
