      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is CO with Q :heart: K :diamond:

      SB checks, BB checks, UTG bets $0.35, Hero calls $0.35, SB folds, BB folds could this be a raise for value? that is the problem with KQ, it's actually a bluffcatcher if it hits imo

      UTG bets $0.75, Hero calls $0.75

      River: ($2.80) J :club: (2 players)
      UTG bets $1.60, Hero ? horrible, horrible turn/river card... could he 3barrel worse here? It's hard to imagine

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: I don't mind a call versus someone that may be fishier (stack size) but we can also consider a light value 3-bet for the same reasons.

      Postflop: We can start from the river here and say this is almost always a fold. AQ, KT, KJ, Kx, AA all beat us now. All we are hoping for is that this fish can 3-barrel bluff.

      Now going back to each street how does his bet 4-way look? Weak or strong?

      His sizing is smaller but he bets into 3 people so that makes his range potentially stronger. I'm not saying we should fold but we need to be caution about future streets.

      As played, he continues the smaller bets which look like draws/weaker Kx or hands that want to induce so I wouldn't mind raise/folding the turn and checking back river (for value versus the many draws and KJ/K9 hands).

      I think we can even raise/fold the flop because I doubt he bets 4-way and then 3-bets as a bluff or many semibluffs.

      You are right, raising the turn sounds great. He could indead have many draws.

      But would we raise the flop for value?

      It would be for thin value given his bet size (which is either trying to induce or betting a weaker made hand/draw).
