      Button ($25)
      Hero (SB) ($34.64)
      BB ($45.10)
      UTG ($12.48)
      MP ($25)
      CO ($25.35) 19/17 cbet=100 AF=0,7 WTS=100 @49hands

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K, Q
      1 fold, MP bets $0.75, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.65, 1 fold

      Flop: ($1.75) 10, 7, K (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $1.10, Hero raises to $2.50, MP calls $1.40

      Turn: ($6.75) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $4, MP calls $4

      River: ($14.75) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks

      Total pot: $14.75 | Rake: $0.66

      I don't like to donk the flop, when he bets I don't like to call, because there are lots of draws so I decide to value raise against them. As a review I think the turnbet is to big and I isolate myself against a better handrange. QJ and KJ are the only hands that can call me here in this spot. What do you think about flop and turn?

      Hi Jazzy,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I'm assuming the stats for MP and not CO?

      So would you raise sets and draws and other strong hands the same way here? This small?

      I think that raising this small is not terrible but then you have to do it with your entire range.

      However, I would just call the flop or raise it bigger. Given the lack of info we don't know how villain can play his draws or even 1p hands so calling is still better imo.

      As played what's the purpose of the turn bet? Get value from KJ? What else?

      Yes, thats a usual raisesize for me, so it should be balanced.
      What else we got value from,...for sure Ace of spades like AT,AJ,AQ.
      Did I forget something?

      So those are very few hands we get value from... What would you expect his flop calling range to contain besides that?

      Do you see him calling AK or KT? How about NFDs?

      A NFD can call this here for sure, a hand like KT would probably go broke on that board, maybe AK, too, but this is actually a hand that I see often calling here and folding on a :spade: turn.

      >>his flopcalling range looks like AT+, KT+, QJ, 98 against this range I got ~60% on the turn.
      I think I can 2nd barrel here, or do I have to wrong approach?
