      imo, check/fold the river, your value bet is pointless because no hands u beat will call that bet.
      if u wanna take the pot away, do it on the flop.

      First of all, your Stack is pretty big, so you should leave the table as soon as you hit the blinds here, I hope this was planned.
      Second point, AQo from Early Position is a fold and you really shouldn't vary there because AQo is simply too weak to raise here!

      On the flop you have a very easy Continuationbet, as your opponent has to believe you have a king in your hand as the preflopraiser, so just bet half the pot there.

      A bet on the river really makes no sense, no worse hand calls but all better ones will so you are just throwing money away.

      first of all, thanks Klonoa and Alaton for all the replys.

      I agree that the riverbet wasn't a good idea, but a cbet on the flop, even if im OOP? Maybe i could do the cbet with my "medium stack", but not with the average shortstack, right?

      For a Continuationbet your position isn't all that important, neither is your Stacksize.
      Most important thing is : how scary does the board look.
      With the King out there most opponents will glady fold their hands and thats what we want.

      But if he have the King, almost all opp will call/reraise my cbet, then i have to go allin cause my stack is short. Right? I think i really don't get when to cbet using SSS... in BSS i think the edge is bigger so you can be a bit looser with cbets but i can't see how this works with SSS

      thanks for all replys guys

      cbet, fold if raised, c/f if called and no a on turn/river. why would you go allin here except for good reads?

      i think the preflopraise is allright though, if you're just a little confident postflop.
