      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7:diamond: , 7:club:
      SB posts small blind ($0.05), Hero posts big blind ($0.10), MP2 folds, MP3 calls, CO raises for $0.40, 2 folds, Hero calls, MP3 folds

      Flop: ($0.95 - 9.50 bb) K:diamond: , T:diamond: , 7:spade: (2 Players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.70, Hero calls

      Turn: ($2.35 - 23.50 bb) K:heart: (2 Players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.50, Hero raises for $3.50, CO folds, Hero gets uncalled back ($2)

      From his bet size on the flop I was thinking he has AK or KQ and is protecting his hand from FD and SD. Hence on the turn I decided to raise to try to get him in despite having a boat. Should I have checked turn and try c/r river?

      Hi Tommy,

      Preflop: loooks fine

      Postflop: Since we are just HU with him and the board is coordinated we can look at actually raising the flop for value especially since you think he has a stronger range.

      I would make it 2.1 or so.

      As played, since we don't know much about villain and can't really expect him to bluff many rivers we should ck/raise him for pure value. If we check we run the risk of the hand going ck/ck.
