      no hud, speed.
      no history with villain.

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($11.55)
      BB ($10)
      UTG ($10.31)
      UTG+1 ($5.03)
      CO ($25.23)
      Hero ($21.51)

      Dealt to Hero Q:heart: A:club:

      fold, fold, CO raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.90, fold, fold, CO calls $0.60

      FLOP ($1.95) T:heart: K:diamond: Q:diamond:

      CO checks, Hero checks

      TURN ($1.95) T:heart: K:diamond: Q:diamond: Q:spade:

      CO bets $0.97, Hero calls $0.97

      RIVER ($3.89) T:heart: K:diamond: Q:diamond: Q:spade: K:club:

      CO bets $3.10, Hero folds

      CO wins $3.64

      I go for c behind flop and betting bigger T and just c behind R. It's super weak but this board is so wet I will be c/r or c/c too many times.

      With this line I was thinking raising on T to extract some value from his Kx. Problem was that his range has too many KQ, QT, AJ. Sure this range is super narrow but while I was playing it seemed to me that he's not doing it with FD or KJ.

      Would you cbet sth like $1,40?
      Is it better to raise T to $3,30?

      I played it super weak but this R is clear fold I think.

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: looks fine since we can expect villain to call lighter due to stack sizes.

      Postflop: I disagree with our flop check.

      We can still get called by worse and we can't really call if he starts betting into us without improving.

      So simply cbet about 1/2 pot and go from there. If he ck/raises we are almost always behind anyway so we can fold. If he check calls we can still check or bet turn.

      As played turn could be a raise fold for pure value from AK, JJ, KJ, etc.
