      Stats:36/23/3bet 12,0/161 hands

      Preflop is call ok ? I have good pot odds and my hand is playable I think.

      Postlop : Flop I think it's ok to call it,it's dry and I have top pair.

      Turn:Just call again or what to do ?

      River I played it check/fold ,because he had just 15% WTSD and 0% cbet river.

      Hi Treyking,

      Preflop: looks fine but we can also consider 3-betting him to gain initiative vs a min raise.

      Postflop: I'd call the flop and turn as well and river is a bit thin because there aren't many hands that can call our bet but our size is good enough that A high may call one bet.

      I agree with calling Flop and Turn. And I also agree with folding to a halfpot or larger River bet.

      You might want to ask yourself what you are trying to gain value from. I don't see him having too many worse KX hands in his range. Are you sure he bets JJ and QQ twice, and then c/c the River? I really doubt it.

      I think checking back on the River is very standard when our kicker is so weak.
      With KJ or KQ I would consider betting the River though.
