      K8s open in the middle position is a little too loose unless you know that co and bu is very tight. I think the worst hand I'm opening here is KTs

      Bet on flop for value against over cards and folding out smaller pocket pairs that could otherwise bluff you off looks good.

      On the turn I think it's better to check and call over cards that missed like QK KJ QJ that could bluff on the A. Betting folds out these hands and isolate yourself against the ace or 9 or pocket pairs TT JJ QQ KK (if they slow played pre flop and did not 3bet)

      On the river you hit your 2p without reads just bet out for value against passive opponent. Someone with such a low aggression might even check back his A and that's a massive loss of value for you.
