      Hi Dzikson,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: What do you think villain is betting that wet flop with? Do you expect FE versus better hands?

      Also, why do we bet the turn so small, that really doesn't look like a value hand (think how much you'd bet if you had a set/overpair that needed value/protection - I doubt it would be close to 50%).

      I think he can bet to steal cause this bard doesnt hit my range so well and i think i could fold maybe 10 x hands but i agree that i should bet turn bigger and i guess call off then ?!

      Think the checkraise is fine here some % of the time. I would expect villain to stab flop rly often so by havig some checkraising range here we discourage villain from betting 100% when checked to. Is KcQc the best hand to make such a play though? I generally prefer using a more polarized range here. Would be a pity if we get shoved on and have to fold a K high fd. I could see myself using stuff like AhJh or maybe QcTc as part of my semi bluff range and of course u should check raise monsters really ofteb here.
