      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: are we raising for value or as a bluff?

      Postflop: The flop cbet is fine and once the turn brings the K it's likely that we are only getting one more street of value so checking to let him bluff his floats is perfectly fine.

      However, once he checks back, we should bet for value versus his PPs such as QQ/JJ and lower hands (possibly even Tx).

      Why did you check the river as well? What's his range in your opinion ?

      So if it's for value you expect villain to call with a lot more worse hands such as QJ/QT/Q9, KJ/KT, etc?

      Considering the fact that he seems looser (over the super small sample) I would say it's at best a thin value bet. We are 3-betting from the blinds to MP so we usually get a lot more respect.

      Raising here is most likely much better than calling but we usually do it to get him to fold preflop, unless he is a looser caller (which we don't know).
