      Hero (SB): $27.32 (109.3 bb)
      BB: $11.03 (44.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with

      a) A K
      b) K Q
      c) K K
      d) 5 5

      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.62, Hero raises to $2.11, BB folds, BTN calls $1.49

      Flop: ($4.47) 2 5 A (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.81, BTN calls $2.81

      Turn: ($10.09) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $6.36, BTN calls $6.36

      River: ($22.81) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $16.04 and is all-in, BTN calls $16.04

      BB and BTN seem like TAGs, only have 60/30 hands on them so can't draw any conclusions on their ranges really.

      How would you play the mentioned hands on this board?

      Hey Schnitzelfisch,

      a) As played the river is close and it's only profitable if villain has a really wide Ax range that can't fold there. We need him calling AT or lower in that spot because I don't think anything else calls. And I would not assume that he has many ATo or lower which means that he has at most one combo of each Ax that we beat (clubs beat us, spades and hearts are blocked).

      So as nitty as it may seem I think river is ck/fold without any other reads.

      b) I would play this KQcc as you played your AhKh.

      c) KK would be interesting here, especially with no clubs. I would probably bet flop and ck/fold that turn.

      d) I would play 55 as you played your AhKh.

      Personally KQcc & 55 I play exactly the way this hand played out.

      AK, the flop cbet is just obvious. I think OTT it's a pretty easy b/f and I would push my sizing here as high as I thought I could without starting to skew his range too much. Personally going for somewhere around $7 maybe $6.90 to make it look smaller :rolleyes: Agree with bogdan, as annoying as it is, the R has to be a ch/f here.

      KK this has been discussed many times and lots of ppl have lots of different views. It's hard to say without some kind of reads on villains game, some ppl i like to ch/call vs and others not. I think cbetting once is a pretty reasonable way to go until you accumulate some reads/tendencies/call 3b ranges.

      Noteable that PF I would not be 3b'ing 55.
