      It’s to bad we don’t know anything of our villain, but if you shove the turn you get normal only action of better. If you have reads he could stack of with a flush draw and top pair, you can go broke here. Otherwise I would play the hand the same way.

      he could also play this line with AQ, we could get it in OTT there - talking in NL2 or NL5 playerpools - is NL10 different there?

      Hand looks good. I am just wondering why do you bet flop 33% pot size?

      I would bet 1/2 pot on flop. All other in the hand is ok.

      I like the flop size especially with the Kd
      EDIT: God damnit La55i, I was just watching your video where you say do this do that without explanation isn't very helpful, here goes:

      His range is weak OTB and you don't mind that many turns really, you block hands like KQ KdXd
      So getting more value from the crappy part of his range composition is pretty important for your overall EV
      You're doing it fully aware that you will induce more raises, and also raises from Qx like AQ that would be less likely to raise vs 1/2 PSB+

      Half pot is fine too, you could succesfully argue to use any size here our hand just plays that well
      And now I'm definitely shoving it in on the turn, he's not fullstacked, this is NL10 where people tend to be passive on the river specifically and he left himself just less than half pot and will really struggle to get away from any hand now that has a piece
