      BB: $25 (100 bb)
      UTG: $36.20 (144.8 bb)
      Hero (MP): $95.16 (380.6 bb)
      CO: $38.79 (155.2 bb)
      BTN: $4.59 (18.4 bb)
      SB: $25.35 (101.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K A
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.85, CO calls $0.85, 3 folds

      Flop: ($2.05) 8 A T (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.25, CO calls $1.25

      Turn: ($4.55) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.25, CO calls $3.25

      River: ($11.05) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $7, CO raises to $19, Hero folds


      MP was 25/19/9 over 700
      FtCB: F - 43, T - 0(4).
      AG% - 26 (28/24/24).
      WTSD% - 29, W$SD - 63(35).

      The board is super draw heavy and therefore I think I will still get calls from many draws. #1 Vs a raise it would be an easy fold, right? Also, I think I should make a PSB instead of 2/3 as all the hands I'll bet here will be TPTK+.

      #2 Could I x/c here? He has many draws that would bet as well as weak TP. This way I would also prevent him from bluffraising me out of the pot.

      I think I should just x/c this river as I block some flush combos and it's a perfect spot to bluff bet. I don't like my bet as I will not be called by worse.

      #3 Or I should just x/f as villain will not be bluffing with worse hands and almost all draws completed?

      Hi Dawidas888,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I would cbet larger on the flop there (with our entire range that cbets such a wet board).

      As played why check/call versus a passive guy? What can he really bluff with? AQ? JJ? he checks those back.

      So it's either bet/fold or ck/fold.
