      PREFLOP
      Value.

      FLOP
      Cbet for value.

      TURN
      Cbet for value again vs KQ/KT/AJ/QQ.

      RIVER
      Cbetting for value again.
      I know it's thin and I beat only KQ/KT at best.
      However, I expect him to raise 22/JJ/QT/KJ on the turn.
      When raised I doubt I'm ever ahead here so I fold (even though I need only about 20% equity).

      Is my value bet on the turn/river too thin?

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Given that the board is a bit dry we can expect him to slowplay some sets like JJ or 22 (6 combos max) and maybe some KJs (only 1 combo). But KQ is 8 combos and KT is 1 combo (I'd only count suited KT) so I think that we do have a valuebet.
