      29/26/23.1. 35 hands only.

      so, good spot for 4b with two blockers. on the flop, I thought that I look so very strong here if I c-bet, so I checked to induce bluffs from Ax type of hands.
      Not sure how to continue from here. decided to go for another check on the turn since he should often bluff here when checked to twice?

      OTR, not sure where I get most value, check to induce once again or bet to avoid him checking back his weaker showdown hands.

      Hey,

      After the small turn bet I think you should just raise the turn. He doesn't just flat any better Kx so you basically have the nuts. When your opponent bets this small he is usually going to do it with a mediocre hand for sort of free showdown. You just raise to not give him that or lead river after you check/call turn. In other words, when he bets small, it's with a weak made hand so he will check back river too often. Choose a line that doesn't let him do that.

      What do you think of a bet turn/shove river? I think his chk back flop is a green light for that, we probably are not getting bluffed that often once he checks flop and we get max value of his showodown value (and we balance our bluffs)

      My line would be to barrel here often so I'd start by cbetting but if Hero's 4betting range is perceived too tight we don't do much by cbetting which is why I didn't mention that. Good thing the thread was bumped. :) (should probably also answer a part of second question with balancing bluff range, I have it on flop, not turn).

      @turn question: Yeah, it makes sense but we can also look like a slowplay that doesn't want Villain to check anymore. I prefer the double check since it's used less often and also less believable when combined with a raise.
