      I go with cold call preflop. I'm not expecting 3b from blinds but I think CO folds a lot to 3b so I can get more value this way.

      Flop is not draw heavy but has potential to become uglier.

      I bet big on the T in case ugly R comes.

      When A comes I actually thought that's an ok card to go for smaller vbet. If he has busted hart FD he's folding. But even if he has 8x or 9x he might call us. I was hoping to see a call from TT, JJ.

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: I think that calling there is a mistake, in BTN vs CO. He seems loose and we have no reason to believe that he folds a lot to 3-bets.

      Postflop: As played I'd bet bigger on both flop and turn. River is close because he can have many AhX but at the same time can have some TT-JJ and maybe 8x. So it's very thin.

      So you're never flatting KK btn vs co? If he opens loosely that doesn't mean he's calling loosely too.

      I was checking behind too many hand so now I'm going for thin value in many spots. But agree that he has more Ax than we wish.

      Why would I ever flat KK in these spots when I have 0 reason to do so? I have no reads on CO or the blinds that would make me want to even consider flatting.
