      153 hands 18/16 cbet 70.

      I call because I have playable hand deep, and have 2bb to pay, and he is UTG so I expect him to pay me off if I hit nuts.

      Is it ok turn check, since he might start bluffing, or I can check raise if he hits Kx, because it is in his range when he checks flop.
      Is overbet ok? I think push would be too much for him even to call Kx, but this way I wanted to look as bluff. When he pushes, I think he never has KK, JJ because he bets that on flop, so I put him on KJ, AK.

      This is quite an easy fold preflop especially against an UTG raise. How do you think this hand is playable postflop?

      On the turn check/raising is the best option here in my opinion. We are likely to have the best hand here, he would hardly put us on 4x, and basically I don't expect him to bet the river if we go for the check/call.
      I would rather make it bigger - around 23bb.

      On the river I like overbetting here. Our range is very very polarized here and we are going to have a lot of bluffs here.
      When he shoves calling is fine.

      PS: Keep in mind that this is the section for hands played up to NL10 so you must have Silver+ status to post hands from NL20.
