      Hi yax,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: We are multiway and the flop is a bit wet so we can bet even larger.

      On the turn we still have some value but the river should be a check/fold. We rarely ever get called by enough worse hands.

      Why would you expect QQ and KK to be in his range on the river? And half of those hands have a spade so they beat you.

      I meant those are only 2 hands I can get value from (not spades). Thinking back I made that bet on the river "for protection" but we barely beat anything so it's just a leak because I can't c/f overpair that easily.

      What about if 7 :heart: comes. Going broke is obviously overplaying our hand but vbet 1/2 would be ok?

      If it's 7h we can look at bet folding for thin value but it's a bit thin.

      How can we bet for protection when no more cards are coming down? Or are we talking about turn?

      So basically you're also c/f to relative blank on the river? I still think we can get some value from KK, QQ, AJ, not much but it is sth.

      Protection in form of block bet. :D ...it does more like a vbet but ok.

      While I can see villain call some QQ preflop why are we assuming that he can call KK as well?

      His flop calling range multiway is usually on the stronger side with pairs and draws. I'm surprised he even calls 77.
