      Hero bets $0.40, BB raises to $1.05, Hero calls $0.65
      He sees me as a loose-aggro player, cbetting everything. That is why I was thinking: he just wants to push me out of the pot. He'd raise bigger for value, and would a Qx really raise here? Dont think so. I'm going to represent a Q till the end, and catch his bluff.

      Turn: ($2.70) 2 :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks

      River: ($2.70) 7 :club: (2 players)

      Hey Imimba1,

      So if this guy sees you as loose aggressive and is going to be playing back vs you a lot, I don't think you should be opening K:d8 in the small blind.

      When you get raised on the flop I would fold. You have 29 hands on the guy I really don't think this is enough history to be floating flop raises OOP with air.

      Having said that, his raise does look somewhat bluffy. You are still in trouble if he decides to fire the turn though. Also he may be bluff-raising with the best hand. Even if your K-high is good, he is still going to have good equity vs you with pretty much any hand.

      Given the way the action went, your river bluff makes sense. It's totally unecessary to play like this in order to beat the stakes though.
