      CO: $57.48 (115 bb)
      BTN: $78.62 (157.2 bb)
      SB: $20.79 (41.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:spade: K:spade:
      2 folds, BTN raises to $1, SB folds, Hero raises to $3.50, BTN calls $2.50

      Flop: ($7.25) 8:diamond: K:diamond: 6:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $4, BTN calls $4

      Hero bets $8, BTN calls $8

      River: ($31.25) 5:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $15, BTN raises to $63.12 and is all-in, Hero ($19,50)?

      30/27 for 20-30 hands

      I don`t know why i didn`t bet bigger on flop/turn to set up the stacks for the river... :facepalm:

      As played, on the river, i decided to go for a 1/2 pot value bet from KT/KJ, perhaps a few combos of AQs with FD or BDFD on the flop. Should i ch/c or overbet shove? Or maybe bet smaller (7$-8$) to induce?

      After he shoved, i doubt that he is bluffing, but there are not many better hands in his range (he is probably shoving the turn with KQ or sets most of the times). I guess it`s a fold anyway?

      Hi Achilles,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Is there any reason as to why we don't size our bets a bit better so we can just bet/bet/bet ?

      And as you said, once he shoves there's not a lot better in his range. 55 is never there and 2p+ usually raises at least the turn. So I would bet/call there if we just bet smaller.

      But I think shoving would be better especially if we size our bets a bit better flop/turn.
