      Looks more like a blocker bet on river, I could even raise it as you have 2 pairs and him having slowplayed sets is less likely. 65 would beat you, but I guess he would bet bigger.

      Hi TreyKing,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: dry flop so our cbet is fine.

      The K is a bad card because it reduces the chance that we get called by lower 1p hands so since we are targeting OESD, backdoor flush draws and Ax hands we should just bet big. I'd make it 1.5-1.6.

      On the river we should just shove to get max value from Ax hands. I doubt villain will have (m)any 6x hands other than a random 6x of spades.
