      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:heart: Q:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 2 BB, fold, BB raises to 6 BB, Hero calls 4 BB

      Flop: (12.5 BB, 2 players) J:heart: 4:heart: 8:spade:
      BB bets 7 BB, Hero calls 7 BB

      Turn: (26.5 BB, 2 players) 6:club:
      BB bets 14 BB, Hero calls 14 BB

      River: (54.5 BB, 2 players) A:club:
      BB checks, Hero bets 74 BB, BB calls 74 BB

      BB shows T:club: A:spade: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 56%, Flop 46%, Turn 66%)
      Hero mucks K:heart: Q:heart: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 44%, Flop 54%, Turn 34%)
      BB wins 196.5 BB

      3bets vs BU 20% (small sample)

      I am not sure about river. If I bet 3/4 is it the same effect as shove? It looked to me that he has something but is afraid of A. When I hit nuts I am almost always overbetting especially if it might look as bluff, so I balance this way.

      Hey GingerKid,

      Preflop call is fine vs smaller 3bet.

      Flop and turn flat is fine. You have good pot-odds and good implied odds. K/Q outs may be live. You may even have the best hand.

      I don't think there a huge difference between smaller bet and overbet. I'd stick to the smaller size. I also don't think bluffing is mandatory here when you hold K-high. You beat a bunch of stuff like 9T and flush-draws.
