      I bet bigger so I have an option of c behind bad R.

      R comes relatively harmless. Was thinking about betting smaller to get some value from Kx but in the end I went for a bit too big of a bet. His c/r is super strong, especially after having in mind c/c on two previous streets so folding should be our first option.

      My question is can we vbet this R? And how much would you bet here to get value from weaker hands?

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: That river is not really harmless, it brings yet another scare card to his 1p hands like weaker Kx that we are targeting.

      So On the river we should definitely bet/fold 1/2 at most. Why are we bet/calling here? What worse raises you there?

      Yep, that's always good but you should always challenge every aspect of it :)

      It seemed to me, that when you posted, you didn't give much thought to the river bet/call part (just the bet part).
