      Hi sketchzr,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: You played this well for value and the sizings are perfect to allow him to make the biggest mistakes (to call down super light).

      How would you play this if you both were 100 BB deep?

      Good question, given there's only really 2 completed draws by turn/river and I have top 2-pair I might want to bet turn bigger and shove river or make some gross overbet I think either can look bluff-ish. I don't mind stacking off with this hand at all vs. this opponent. By the river I have him on Kx at best, but as shows he actually has worse.

      Yeh, so our river decision really comes down to what range we want to get called by and what do we expect villain to do if we check.

      For example if we want to maximize value versus Kx we either look at ck/raising (but a bit risky because villain can check back certain kx) or overbetting (possibly overbet shoving).

      If we want to get value from other pairs as well like 9x, TT, Jx, we can't really overbet unless we've seen him play as a station.
