      BTN: $112.29 (224.6 bb)
      SB: $63.66 (127.3 bb)
      Hero (BB): $87.14 (174.3 bb)
      UTG: $58.12 (116.2 bb)
      MP: $77.78 (155.6 bb)
      CO: $60.52 (121 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K A
      UTG folds, MP raises to $1.50, CO calls $1.50, BTN calls $1.50, SB folds, Hero raises to $7.75, 2 folds, BTN calls $6.25

      Flop: ($18.75) 4 Q 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($18.75) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.25, BTN calls $7.25

      River: ($33.25) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $20, Hero calls $20

      I don't think it's best to bet on the flop as nothing better ever folds. I plan a x/c x/c x/f line.

      When he checks back the flop I discount his Qx pretty heavily and I make a bet for thin value. Since he is not raising my tiny bet I again put him on even a weaker range.

      I think river card is perfect for x/calling him, his large bet makes me even happier as I believe his range to be capped at TPNK and usually he would bet smaller with that imo.

      I think you have the most value by just checking down on every street and calling once or twice (probably twice especially on this runout)

      I guess your line is also reasonable especially when you bet small on the turn (a must if u want to keep villain's range wide).
