      67/12, agg. freq. river 40 (10), 33 h

      I think I should bet big on turn while I can get calls from draws. I thought this will look too strong, but 2nd pairs willl not fold I guess even vs big bet.

      On river I bet small because draws are busted, so let him bluff with them. Againn - missing value from 2nd pair.

      After he raises, I am not sure if I should 3bet - there might not be hands paying me and I pay to better kings and fullhouses.

      Hey SPeedFANat1c,

      Firstly regarding your turn bet sizing.....betting small here sometimes even looks suspiciously strong, like you've boated or quadded up. Draws and lone Kx are likely betting bigger. No need to pot turn, but I still think draws may call $6.

      On the river you have stone cold nuts. There are no better kings, you have a boat.

      I'd probably just ship river in this instance. You don't want to miss value from weak kings etc, and presumably you don't have any reads that villain will raise light.

      Oh yeah,, when posting hand, misread - I was thinking I have trips :) but in game I saw that I have FH I think, but there is not many Kx in his range, now when 3 kings are blocked. And his river agression is higher, so thats I wanted to induce.

      Yeah, your line is pretty decent. Nothing wrong with the hand imo.
