      CO: $18.16 (113.5 bb)
      BTN: $20.44 (127.8 bb)
      SB: $14.29 (89.3 bb)
      BB: $52.94 (330.9 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $16.87 (105.4 bb)
      MP: $64.59 (403.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A K
      Hero raises to $0.64, MP calls $0.64, 2 folds, SB calls $0.56, BB folds

      Flop: ($2.08) 4 3 8 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP checks

      Turn: ($2.08) K (3 players)
      SB bets $0.16, Hero raises to $1.76, MP calls $1.76, SB folds

      River: ($5.76) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $6.24

      Villians play didnt make much sense to me here, with a fish in the SB my range on the flop is very much an AK/AQ/KQ type hand imo as i would always bet my overpairs with a fish involved.

      I expect villian to bet 99-QQ on the flop, also any sets, most FDs to push me out of the hand, when reg checks back i expect to see 22,55,66,77 alot of the time here.

      When SB donks turn i decide to raise for value vs worse Kx, 8x, possibly SDs/FDs. When MP calls im kinda confused as to their range, im kinda thinking more along the lines of possible Kx such as QcKx, or maybe jsut KQo,KJo,KxTc.

      When i check river villians overbet really confused me at the time, my first reaction what that it must be a bluff, but im not sure actually how many bluffs he gets to river with?

      Hi Keoghh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that we should bet the river and not check it. We want value from Kx hands that check back flop.

      Villain can have some flushes that checked back flop and also AdX.

      The only hands he can bluff with are AdX hands but people at these limits don't generally use overbets for bluffs so once we check it's closer to a fold.
