      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K K

      Villain is u/k

      Thoughts on this line?

      First I actually use it :P

      well with the normal 3 street value bet I dont see him paying us off a lot

      with a c/r we wont continue with anything that we dont stack anyway

      So I opted to go for this line

      Hi maritsula,

      preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Generally I'm not a huge fan of taking unconventional lines without information on villain. However, given we crush this board so hard I don't mind checking flop and calling but I think a ck/raise on the turn can do wonders (we don't rep a lot).

      As played he is clearly valuebetting so he may level himself into thinking you turned your SD hand into a bluff.

      Switch shoes, what would you do on the river with a KQ type hand?
