      Button ($3)
      SB ($6.02)
      Hero (BB) ($7.22)
      UTG ($5.47)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:spade: , K:heart:
      1 fold, MP calls $0.05, CO calls $0.05, 1 fold, SB calls $0.03, Hero bets $0.30, MP calls $0.25, CO calls $0.25, 1 fold

      I find it hard playing overpairs 6max OOP, any thoughts here? Villain kind of loose.

      Hmm, ok, let's say i bet on turn, he calls, now i bet on river smallish and he shoves, at this point i'm commited. So i fail to control the pot size by trying to protect my hand from possible draw, or it's ok in your opinion to play for stacks here?

      I raise a little more preflop, bet flop, bet turn and check/call river.
      I'm not betting to protect, I bet for value. On the river I guess only a jack will call me so I prefer to check/call.

      Because many worser hands could call you here and if you get raised on river then you can lay down your hand. But you can also play the river check/call which is almost the same as betting just you will get value for sure. Vs a loose player I definitely bet the river. Lets see what judges advice.

      +1

      Some people love to call with any pockets on paired boards. Bet bet bet for value, but watch out if he raises you.

      Will think of it, but then i should raise much weaker hands the same way and i doubt that it will pay me off playing OOP against loose ppl.

      This one sounds good.

      True, some even are willing to get it in on flop, but i think he would have raised pp from MP. My bad i didn't include it in my first post.
