      Preflop, flop and turn easy game. Probably bet sizing it should be a little higher but I like do it because I build smaller pot and it easier to play x/c on the river. It's cheaper to bluff catch like in this example.

      River: I know that we can easily bet for value but against this player I wanted to bluff catch. His AFq is high so he can bluff with missed FD, SD.

      Is it ok overall to play x/c?

      Definitely value betting here. What missed draws do you put him on? There are no open enders or flush draws on the Flop. I can't think of too many draws where he would call both Flop or Turn with, maybe he's kind of a loose station so that might be possible where he calls twice with gutshots but overall I just think that there's way more value in a value bet as compared to bluff catching.

      You should use weaker kings to bluff catch and TPTK is definitely a bet here.
