      CO 30/20/2.6/9.2/30/188hands
      86%call 3b

      I think squeezing for value is ok, the guy doesn't fold to 3bets & BU is fairly nitty.

      Do you think checking flop is ok?
      I figured I can check & still get stacks in by the river, also if I bet flop/turn he might fold all mid PP since I get more credit for Kx.

      If he was full stacked or I didn't have BD hearts I probably just cbet.

      UTG: $12.49 (50 bb)
      MP: $10 (40 bb)
      CO: $17.25 (69 bb)
      BTN: $40.57 (162.3 bb)
      Hero (SB): $26.42 (105.7 bb)
      BB: $20 (80 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K J
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.75, BTN calls $0.75, Hero raises to $3, BB folds, CO calls $2.25, BTN folds

      Flop: ($7) 3 3 K (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($7) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.90, CO calls $3.90

      River: ($14.80) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $11, CO calls $10.35 and is all-in

      $35.50 pot ($1.77 rake)
      Final Board: 3 3 K 2 9
      CO showed 9 9 and won $33.73 ($16.48 net)
      Hero showed K J and lost (-$17.25 net)

      Hi Danny,

      Since we qualify this guy as a fish I doubt that he will fold pairs to two barrels unless the board brings an A or Q.

      So we can bet flop and turn here for pure value or you can bet flop, ck turn and let him bet his floats and if he checks ship river.

      However, if villain has been aggro I don't mind checking flop to let him try to steal the pot from us. And if he checks back, like here, we can take him to value town.
