      Dealt to Hero T:heart: K:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, BB calls $0.20

      FLOP ($0.60) 3:heart: K:club: 5:spade:

      Hero bets $0.40, BB calls $0.40

      Hero shows T:heart: K:diamond:
      (Pre 26%, Flop 14.1%, Turn 4.5%)

      BB wins $5.60


      Flop and T are easy. On R I don't think we can get value from worse hands. Almost all draws got there + 2 pair combos, but even if he has Kx we beat only K6 and K9...So c is superior here. Is c/c and option. I didn't like that option while playing so I bet myself instead (not a good argument, just saying my thought process).

      Can we c/c 1/2 pot bet? C/f is quite weak but unfortunately we don't beat many hands.

      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop cbetting is good.

      On the turn I think betting again is fine.
      What do you think about check/calling here though?

      As played, I think the river is a check/fold.
      I can hardly see any worse hands calling us here if we bet and if we check it is unlikely for those hands to bet themselves so he's only left to bet with better.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Argument for c/c is that if he doesn't have Kx he's probably folding to T barrel. Question is whether he bet-bluffs here. So when T gets a bit more draw heavy I actually like betting more since he might have some 76, 86, 87, 98 or even some PP.

      Yeah, probably the best line.

      Tnx for your time. :)

      Hi.

      You need to assess how many streets of value you can go for. Compare how KTo fares vs his preflop range, and also how likely he is to call down 2 or 3 bets.

      I would assume that vs the average opponent, even in Blind vs Blind, you only have 2 streets of value here. Given the relative dryness of the board, I prefer either checking Flop or Turn. If board had more draws, I would probably bet Flop and Turn, and check/call a blank River.

      Thanks.
