      SB showed A Q and won $33.73 ($16.23 net)
      Hero mucked K K and lost (-$17.50 net)


      I thought his range was Qx good kicker or fd.

      If so, should I call river?

      Hi Gonchan,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I agree that his range is draws/Qx but can also have some rare 2p and sets.

      Once you raise and he just calls he is most likely not on 2p/sets. The turn is pretty bad but I think we are better off bet/folding small to get value from draws.

      I'd make it 7.5 or so.

      As played I think that calling the river is a bit light because we are expecting him to bluff a draw given how the hand got played and I feel that he has a lot more Qx that bets there.
