      CO bets $20.00, Hero?

      Notes: bet big flop/turn QQ on dry Jxxxx and ch river SBvsBB

      I think preflop calling is best.

      I think raising flop/turn isn`t great on a monotone board, but he can value bet worse and bluff. => i call 2x

      On the river? I`m not sure if he is betting for value worse hands like AK/AA. His sizing looks like a value bet? So i think folding is better?

      Hey AchillesBG,

      Preflop is ok, you have position and CO could be isolating wide vs UTG limp.

      Calling flop + Turn is pretty standard imo. Villain can have Kx, AA, + a selection of one card FDs. He can also have sets and flushes of course.

      I would lean towards a call on the river. Imo villain could definitely value bet AK, AA. And he may look for a cheap bluff since you can have busted 's in your range. His stats suggest he is aggressive also. You need best hand 25% to make call on the river, and I think you will have that.
