      Is double float okay here, or just raise flop? After I just called, can I bet river? I don't rep too much but KsXs. I think it's not a good card for bluff as I don't rep Tx, JJ-QQ anymore, altough I floated with the intention of bluffing the river.

      Hey Holy,

      I favour a flop raise with your hand, I think it's just slightly too weak to call. As played though, call turn is OK and on the river you can still rep slowplayed sets from the flop, Kx of hearts, Kx of diamonds depending on what your fold to cbet is. Your aim is to make him fold hands worse than Tx anyway so you are not targetting Kx part of his range that never folds.

      LE: The idea of what you rep is also a 2 way street. What value you rep? Not much. What bluffs do you rep though? How often do people call 3 times with air/weak hands to bluff river (talking about call pre, flop and turn)?
