      Hello,

      Is there any reason to be calling a 3bet OOP with KQo? Readless I would fold.

      I would usually bet turn as I would expect him to bet his better hands.

      As played, we should definitely bet river.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Yeah I thought flatting oop was very marginal. What about a 4bet there?

      I was afraid i'd have to bet/fold the turn (I don't know if that was irrational or not)

      Am i betting small on the river?

      I would be fine with 4betting here.

      What's the problem with bet/folding turn? At the end of the day it is quite unusual if he happens to raise worse hands when he plays this way, so I am quite comfortable with bet/folding turn.

      On the river I'm betting around $1.3
