      BB was 14/3/10 over 38. AG% - 36.

      FLOP
      I have the implied odds to call with the NFD.

      TURN
      I improve my outs a little bit.

      RIVER
      Now I beat KQ as well and some weird Q:cJc / Q:cTc. I think given the pot odds calling here is an option.
      It's possible he would 3bet KK/QQ preflop so some sets should be discounted. Mostly I'm against either JT / 55 / KQ.

      Hello,

      On the flop I'd bet $0.25.
      When the nit raises calling IP is fine.

      Turn doesn't help us too much, but I would call here again as we are given decent odds and we have position.

      As played, I would fold the river here. I am not sure that the guy is going to bet the river with KQ here, and to be honest there aren't any worse hands to bet here in my opinion.

      Best,
      Plamen
