      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is SB with Q :heart: Q :diamond:
      2 folds, CO raises to $1.50, 1 fold, Hero raises to $5, BB calls $4.50, 1 fold

      Flop: ($11.50) K :heart: 7 :spade: 5 :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks

      Turn: ($11.50) 8 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $5.75, BB calls $5.75

      River: ($23.00) 3 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.00, BB raises to $29.36, Hero folds

      I decided to start by ch/c the flop and let him bluff.

      On the turn, i think, betting for value is ok.

      On the river, i thought, i can get some more value from pairs? I don`t think he will turn a pair < K, into a bluff?

      By far the best play in this spot imo.

      I agree. Villain's range for checking back flop contains a bunch of worse pairs and ace-highs. You could even bet smaller here, like $4.

      I agree that he is unlikely to turn pair into bluff. I wouldn't be surprised to see a slowplayed set. I think your value bet is fine, and I like your sizing.
