      What you think about Hero play?
      Turn bet was mistake?
      Better check and let opponent bet on river with wider range?

      Hey Urmo1,

      Preflop iso-raise is fine.

      I'd definitely cbet flop for value against this opponent. When you get raised it's a little awkward, but villain can potentially be raising wider than just Kx, + you block Kx.

      I don't mind a turn bet, but I'd bet really small. Villain can easily have the best hand with KT, 99, JQ and playing it tricky. The range you are looking to get called by is basically weak pairs and draws. I'd bet like $1.20.

      On the river....not really sure how great bet size is. If villain is huge fish maybe he just calls down with 9x.....but it seems to me is range is air (busted draws) + slowplays a lot. If you want to get value from TJ/9x that decided to check-raise for whatever reason you have to bet pretty small.
