      Flop: ($3.30) 5:heart: 8:heart: K:heart: (3 players)
      UTG checks, MP bets $2.20, Hero calls $2.20, UTG folds

      Turn: ($7.70) 4:spade: (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $3.50, MP calls $3.50

      River: ($14.70) 2:diamond: (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero checks

      vs unk. He seems like 99-QQ with one heart or weak Kx. I wanted him to call my T bet and I would fold vs his donk on heart R. What about sizing ? My goal is to take cash from 9h9-QhQ weaker Kx. If I would have KQ or KA I would bet on no hear river for ~1/2 as well

      Hey ilidek,

      Preflop call is a little on the loose side. It might be ok, but 3bet bluffing and folding are both legitimate options.

      You should call the flop when you hit top pair.

      I like your bet on the turn. Sizing is good too. Villain is usually not very strong here, but you definitely still want to protect yourself vs 1 card flush draws, maybe extract some thin value from worse pairs in his range too, like 99-QQ.

      River check back is fine. A lot of villains range is busted hearts and is not calling. Smaller pairs may also fold to another bet. You don't want to isolate yourself vs better hands.
