      Hi this is part of my homework.
      I have to find a hand where I have the initiative postflop.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):
      $5.00
      BB:
      $12.59
      UTG2:
      $7.49
      MP1:
      $5.00
      MP2:
      $9.01
      MP3:
      $2.15
      CO:
      $2.00
      BU:
      $8.73


      Preflop: Hero is SB with T, T.
      5 folds, BU raises to $0.15, Hero raises to $0.50, BB folds, BU calls $0.35.

      Flop: ($1.05) K, 4, K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.65, BU calls $0.65.

      Turn: ($2.35) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      River: ($2.35) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.10, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.35.
      The villain has 23/15 over 62 hands, not got enough info on his steal stats.


      comments please.
      Does it look like I turned my hand into a bluff?


      cheers
      Mark

      Hey Mark,

      I would sometimes check the flop here but cbetting for value is also OK.

      Turn check is doable to induce lighter calls but I don't think Q hits his range that much, unless he has AQ specifically that plays like this.

      On the river, I think you can get a call from a range containing some A highs and smaller pairs so vbet is cool.
