      The board ran out pretty bad for us. We now lose to KJ and JT. I think its close. Whether we can bet here depends on two things.

      1. How many QX hands does he have preflop? If he has Q8 Q7 here this would be a bet
      2. How often does villain slowplay on flop and turn? The more often he checkraises KT T8s or sets by the flop or turn, the better it is for us to valuebet the river cos we lose to fewer hands.

      What i know is that if u do choose to bet, u must make it on the smaller sode (1/3-1/2 pot) cos we are not a huge favourite here and we want to keep villain's calling range as wide as possible.
