      MP3 same guy from this hand - http://www.pokerstrategy.com/forum/thread.php?threadid=251672.
      Very similar situation.

      PREFLOP
      Freeplay.

      FLOP
      Value.

      TURN
      I think I still have a value bet here.

      RIVER
      I think I still have a value bet vs Kx but I reduced my bet size to allow weaker hands to call.
      Should I reduce my sizing more or could I c/c in this spot given the previous hand?

      Hello,

      I don't mind overbetting the flop here as long as you think villain won't care too much.

      On the turn I'd bet around $0.3.

      The river is ugly here since now it is much less likely worse hadns to be calling us here. I think that betting is fine though, but we should go for something like 1/3 pot, to encourage him calling with Kx, since I doubt he calls Kx for this sizing.
      Check/calling would be the worst option here since he is going to check all his weaker made hands and only bet his better.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi kymupa

      Thanks for the evaluations!

      If we bet 1/3 and he raises it's an easy fold, right? I was thinking if it's possible that low bet induces him to bluffraise as some sort of a spazz.
