      Prima, $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      Hero (BB): $20.83 (104.2 bb)
      MP: $31.40 (157 bb)
      CO: $23.28 (116.4 bb)
      BTN: $20.92 (104.6 bb)
      SB: $34.28 (171.4 bb) 10/10/0.3/0/33/10

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J A
      3 folds, SB raises to $0.50, Hero calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1) 7 K 8 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.70, Hero calls $0.70

      As the board is rather dry I decide to float. I expect him to bet turn with K and check with almost everything else.

      Turn: ($2.40) 9 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.80, SB calls $1.80

      he checks and the board is becoming a bit connected, I stick to my plan and bet to take it down. If he had Kx hand he'd have bet turn himself so I think he'll x/f most of the time.

      River: ($6) 6 (2 players)
      SB checks, [color=red]Hero ???

      After he calls turn the river brings a one card straight. Should I bet here or just give it up? he could have x/c turn with a draw but I think he can also bet turn with a draw if he has a Tx kind of hand. I on the other hand can rep a Tx type of hand, semi bluffing turn and betting river for value.

      Hi mahee,

      Preflop: Since he made it 2.5x we can consider a lighter 3-bet for value to re-gain initiative.

      Postflop: AS played we could rep a Tx by betting and most people at these limits will fold weaker hands that they bluffcatched with on the turn like weak Kx hands.

      A bet of $4 would be enough here and only has to work 40% of the time.
