      I checked turn not to make PP fold.

      River, call was fine?

      Hello,

      I would rather bet the turn myself.
      It is unlikely that Kx is going to fold and I doubt we can take any value on the river from PPs.

      As played, river is good.

      Best,
      Plamen

      If we check the turn we might induce some bluffs on the river from missed fds or small pp that turning into a bluff. Same time we can still take value from Kx on the river and now the pp might think they can bluff catch some times, isn't it?

      Well we can take the value from FDs on the turn when we bet and I think he isn't really going to try to bluff with a PP here.

      In addition, if we bet ourselves we define the size of the bet ourselves.
