      PokerStars - $0.50 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 104.86 BB
      SB: 124.8 BB (VPIP: 20.79, PFR: 12.87, 3Bet Preflop: 2.63, Hands: 103)
      BB: 114.72 BB (VPIP: 23.68, PFR: 21.05, 3Bet Preflop: 3.85, Hands: 76)
      UTG: 45.5 BB (VPIP: 12.50, PFR: 12.50, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 8)
      MP: 50 BB (VPIP: 19.59, PFR: 14.97, 3Bet Preflop: 10.34, Hands: 150)
      Hero (CO): 107.92 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

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

      fold, fold, Hero raises to 2.5 BB, BTN calls 2.5 BB, fold, BB raises to 9 BB, Hero raises to 19 BB, fold, BB calls 10 BB

      Flop: (41 BB, 2 players) Q:spade: 8:spade: J:club:
      BB checks, Hero bets 16 BB, fold

      Hero wins 39.16 BB

      Is my size ok? I would bluff with KQ, AJ, AQ often IP with the same size.

      I am hoping to fold only TT and AK on flop, is it bad?

      Hey M,

      Preflo I would go for 21bb or so just because of the extra caller when you open. Postflop is a clear c/f imo. What do you expect to make him fold apart from TT that doesn't shove it in preflop? Most AK have BD flush since you have AK :diamond: . Jx and Qx don't fold, suited connectors smack this board too. Extremely surprised you got a fold but it's -EV to cbet here in the long run.
