      Villain stats:
      VPIP/PFR/AF/WTS/Hands
      19/15/4.0/27/207

      Flop: I just call his cbet, guess if I raise I'm only isolating against better hands, right?

      Turn: A scare card appears and he checks, so I bet here because I think its possible he calls with an ace since he has a gutshot+overcard. Maybe it was better to check behind and call river?

      River: I don't see any better hand calling turn and playing c/fold river, and I have some showdown value so I just check behind.

      I'm having a hard time figuring out why a tag with his AF wouldn't bet that turn if he had Ax, and probably with most of his air too, it's such a perfect spot.

      So when he checks i don't really see him c/f very often, i mostly expect him to be doing that with hands that beat us, figuring if he bets the K we're gonna fold everything he beats and raise with everything that beats him.

      Even if i'm wrong and he has air, he's not calling a turn bet with it. The only hands that we beat that might call a bet are 66-77, and i don't think he'd play those that way (likely c/f if he decides not to bet the K with them), so i tend to think it's way too thin.

      I'd much rather check behind that turn and c/f or c/c the river depending on the feel i get from his river bet.

      Because he is bad! I haven't found a winning regular in my DB so far (even I am in the loser side :D , but I'll improve hehe) I really laughed here when I saw the showdown :P , but yeah check behind on turn, call river would be a better line.

      Hehe well actually yeah kind of :( , sometimes I go bet/bet/bet with overpairs on wet boards to protect the "best" hand only to be called down by QQ+, and some weird moves from villain that cost me a lot, let's say I'm adapting to bad and weird plays, and taking expensive notes xD

      Variance helps a bit too, I am almost 6 BIs down with KK preflop shove:



      4 times running into aces (1-3), 3 times vs QQ (1-2) and once vs random shortstack.

      And that is not counting when villain cold-called my kings 4 bet with jacks only to obviously catch his set :f_cool:

      But well, the important part is to improve my game :f_grin:

      And I'm playing at mansion.

      I think we all know the feeling, hang in there. So long as you keep a good bankroll to mitigate variance it will pay off eventually.

      I´d likely played the hand the same way.
