      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:spade: A:club:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 3.5 BB, fold, BB calls 2.5 BB

      Flop: (7.5 BB, 2 players) J:spade: A:spade: Q:spade:
      BB checks, Hero bets 4.6 BB, BB calls 4.6 BB

      Is the bet for protection concept available in this case or this would be for pure value? what about vs a reg?

      Most bets mostly aren't just either or. In this case it's both. It's almost completely for value, but a little bit for protection too.

      Hi DNYiancu,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Protection is generally a by-product of a different reason. For example value.

      You bet for value mainly but you also protect your hand by doing so.

      If it were against a reg it would depend on the player. It would be thin value/protection then in most cases.
