      BB: 150.62 BB (VPIP: 20.31, PFR: 14.84, 3Bet Preflop: 7.27, Hands: 131)
      UTG: 90.96 BB (VPIP: 25.86, PFR: 14.04, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 59)
      MP: 100 BB (VPIP: 22.79, PFR: 20.00, 3Bet Preflop: 11.11, Hands: 577)
      CO: 50.64 BB (VPIP: 50.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 8)
      Hero (BTN): 200.68 BB
      SB: 120.06 BB (VPIP: 12.09, PFR: 9.89, 3Bet Preflop: 4.76, Hands: 95)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:spade: A:spade:

      fold, fold, CO calls 1 BB, Hero raises to 4 BB, fold, BB calls 3 BB, CO calls 3 BB

      Flop: (12.5 BB, 3 players) 4:spade: 8:diamond: K:diamond:
      BB checks, CO bets 4 BB, Hero raises to 11 BB, fold, CO calls 7 BB

      Turn: (34.5 BB, 2 players) 7:heart:
      CO checks, Hero bets 34.5 BB, CO calls 34.5 BB

      River: (103.5 BB, 2 players) 2:heart:
      CO bets 1.14 BB, Hero calls 1.14 BB

      CO shows K:heart: 6:heart: (One Pair, Kings) (Pre 28%, Flop 13%, Turn 16%)
      Hero shows K:spade: A:spade: (One Pair, Kings) (Pre 72%, Flop 87%, Turn 84%)
      Hero wins 100.5 BB

      Is my raise size ok? I would usually raise larger, but this time there was a player after me who probably calls preflop for set value. Is river shove ok? I wanted to get max value from his draws, and if he has Kx he never folds.

      Hi Gingerkid,

      Why are we worried about BB that calls for set value when we decide on our raise? Our main concern should be how to get max value from CO.

      I would definitely raise bigger there so we can shove the turn without having to put a PSB in there. I'd raise to about 15-16 BB which should give us a pot of 42BB+ with just about 30 behind.

      As played just ship turn, no need to leave 1-2 BB behind.
