      Final Board: A K K 3 2
      Hero mucked Q A and lost (-$0.75 net)
      BB mucked and won $1.71 ($0.96 net)

      Villain is unknown. Do I value bet a 2nd time here? I don't feel like there's enough worse hands that will call. On the river I feel that if he has an Ace he's not betting, especially so large when FD completes. So I think river is a fold

      Hey Tommygecko,

      I'd definitely bet turn for value here. Flush-draws, worse Ax, QJ/QT may all call. Vs a raise you have a pretty easy fold.

      On a blank river you can check back - you avoid paying off Kx and villain will not pay you with busted draws anyway.
