      Hello!

      When he checked the turn, I bet for value and protection. I believe he would continue betting the turn if he would have something big. At that point I suspected on weak King or Jx. I decied to bet the river also.. Is it better to check it back? SB is unknown.

      Hi.

      I don't think you have 3 streets of value vs an unknown when the Turn coordinated the board further, improving hands like QT/J9.

      You have the option of bet Turn check River or check Turn bet River. I'll prefer checking Turn with KQ and betting Turn with AK. KQ is less vulnerable since it has a gutshot
