      NL Holdem $0.02(BB) Replayer
      SB ($2.06)
      Hero ($1.97)
      UTG ($0.59)
      CO ($2)
      BTN ($1.93)

      Dealt to Hero K:club: Q:heart:

      fold, CO raises to $0.06, BTN calls $0.06, fold, Hero raises to $0.20, CO calls $0.14, fold

      FLOP ($0.47) 2:spade: 3:diamond: J:heart:

      Hero checks, CO checks

      TURN ($0.47) 2:spade: 3:diamond: J:heart: 6:club:

      Hero bets $0.12, CO calls $0.12

      RIVER ($0.71) 2:spade: 3:diamond: J:heart: 6:club: 6:diamond:

      Hero checks, CO checks

      30/22/1.0 30hands CO
      46/0/1.0 13 BTN

      PRE: I think this is great spot to squezze for value. Get call from CO so i put him a wide range.

      F: bad for me, i don't c-bet flop like Jxx often becosue his range hit very good here. AJ,KJ,QJ,JT,J9,TT-22 so even 44 not fold, i don't expect he fold one bet AK-AQ,AT so i c/f, but he snap check back looks like he miss flop

      T: and now i not sure this is good reason to bet. I bet to protect my equity and fold his QT, T9 etc hand and win pot now. we can bet for this reason? or i should bet only for bluff or value?

      Preflop I don't mind squeezing but we should make it bigger - $0.26.

      I don't mind checking the flop here as long as you think villain won't fold to our cbet enough.

      As played, just check the turn as well. By betting like this we just value bet ourselves, since Ax is never folding and we just make the pot bigger and make our play on the river harder.

      On the river checking is fine.
