      Villain just sat down and posted the blind OOP. Should I have raised the flop for value vs basically 100% range? The turn raise got me a bit worried, but I called because his rance was so wide.

      IPoker, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      CO: $2.78 (69.5 bb)
      BTN: $4.99 (124.8 bb)
      SB: $0.69 (17.3 bb)
      Hero (BB): $6.91 (172.8 bb)
      UTG: $2 (50 bb)
      MP: $6.28 (157 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K 5
      CO posts BB OOP, 2 folds, CO checks, 2 folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.10) Q 2 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.07, CO calls $0.07

      Turn: ($0.24) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.24, CO raises to $2.67 and is all-in, Hero calls $2.43

      River: ($5.58) K (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:
      $5.58 pot ($0.37 rake)
      Final Board: Q 2 5 5 K
      CO showed A A and lost (-$2.78 net)
      Hero mucked K 5 and won $5.21 ($2.43 net)

      Hi.

      Preflop: I think it's close. I would be more inclined to check if CO limped. I may raise here IF
      -CO is known to have a really wide range
      -He plays weak on the Flop or Preflop.

      If not checking BB would be my default play. BUT given that CO is a poster, his range is 100% here. I think I like raising Preflop here more.

      Flop: I don't mind a protection/thin value bet. Expect to get called by some Ace highs here.

      Turn: Snap call. Our kicker is so strong and we beat so many worse hands. Remember that he has every 5X in the deck since he posted the BB in the CO. And of course we occasionally see bad players overplay KK/AA after playing them terribly in limped pots.

      Thanks.
