      Hero checks, BTN bets 80 BB, Hero calls 80 BB


      Stats - 12/9 AF - 2 @77 hands

      77 hands weren't too many, but he seemed tight guy. Reason behind i just check/calling, we are 200bb deep and KK set could be possible.

      What do you think is right line? cbet or check/shoving or check/call?

      Reason i didn;t go for cbet, i didn;t want to get raised.

      Hi.

      River is either bet or checkshove. There are way more combos of kx than kk or 3x. I dont like villains bet anyway if he has kx cos he is just not gaining value from worse.

      Thank you.

      200bb is still okay to check-shove here? In case you didn't notice our stack size. :)

      I think you should have bet larger on Turn, something like 39BB.

      1) Board has double flush draws - People get more stubborn since your range is more draw heavy
      2) Board paired - Less combos of sets from you

      River would be a 128BB pot and we will have 140+ left.

      We now rep super narrow (only 3 combos of 44) so I just jam the River and hope he hero-calls with KX, both flush draws missed anyway.

      As for whether to check/shove, I think people just bet KX here on the River way too often without thinking whether they have any value.

      "Oh I have the best hand here probably, since I expect him to bet 3X/44 himself."

      Then when they get shoved on, and they make some crying call.
