      UTG checks, Hero bets $37.50 and is all-in, UTG folds

      $35.25 pot ($1.76 rake)
      Final Board: 6 3 K 3 9
      Hero mucked A 3 and won $33.49 ($18.74 net)
      UTG mucked and lost (-$14.75 net)


      On flop, K high dry board but against 2 villain so I checked.
      On turn, I hit trips so bet
      On river, should I half bet instead shove? AK would call but KQ would call only half bet..

      Hey Gonchan,

      Preflop bluff is obviously dependent on CO and whether he's folding a lot to 3bets.

      Presumably CO is responding tightly to 3bets if you've selected a good target so there is no need to fire flop multi-way vs a guy with a strong range and a possible UTG calling station.

      I think smaller bet on the river is good. On the turn CO likely donks something like Kx. His range is usually either air or stuff like PP's that want to pot control.
      He might pay off a smaller bet on the river but not a shove.
