      2 folds, CO calls $0.50, Hero raises to $2, SB calls $1.75, BB folds, CO calls $1.50

      Flop: ($6.50) K T Q (3 players)

      $46.23 pot ($2.31 rake)
      Final Board: K T Q 6 4
      CO showed J 6 and lost (-$19.55 net)
      Hero showed K 9 and won $43.92 ($24.37 net)

      CO 56/0/9 SB 21/18/278

      There was ton of draws and made hand would raise flop so I thought I had a slight value.

      Is it profitable play?

      Hi Gonchan,

      Preflop: looks fine versus loose CO.

      Postflop: The flop isn't the greatest and our hand is on the weaker side but I still think we have value at least against CO so I don't mind bet/folding there.

      As played, the turn is super dry so I'd go for another bet of 1/2 pot looking to check behind the river.

      Since we can expect a lot of the stronger hands to raise at some point we can even consider betting the river for the rest of the money ($16.40) since he probably calls any Qx/JJ type hand and the weaker Kx he has and maybe even Tx.
