      $0.1/$0.25 No Limit Holdem
      8 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG ($4.20)
      UTG+1 ($5.50)
      MP1 ($19.01)
      MP2 ($11.17)
      CO ($13.15)

      -> fold to 2nd barrel 33%

      BTN ($8.37)
      SB ($18.75)
      Hero (BB) ($26.46)

      Pre-flop: ($0.35, 8 players) Hero is BB Q:diamond: K:diamond:
      4 folds, CO calls $0.25, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, CO calls $1.25

      Flop: T:heart: 5:heart: K:spade: ($3.10, 2 players)
      Hero bets $2, CO calls $2

      Turn: T:club: ($7.10, 2 players)
      Hero bets $4.50, CO calls $4.50

      River: J:club: ($16.10, 2 players)
      Hero bets $5.15, CO calls $5.15 [All-in]


      1) Okey played? On the river he had just $5.15 left but maybe I could c/c to induce something?

      2) About preflop, should I raise this up if his limp/call % is 70 or is checking fine?

      Against these guys OOP, I prefer checking preflop, since you can't get him to fold to a lot of cbets and then you'll be in a bad spot OOP.


      Post flop is pretty standard in my opinion. Against these midstacks a TP/GK is usually enough to stack them. Of course this board really sucks for us, but we have to 2nd barrel the turn and we're commited by the river, so we can't do much.

      About c/c or 3rd barreling the river, I dont think it makes much of a difference, but since he bets lot vs missed cbet on the river, you can try a c/c and see if he's stupid enough to bluff his busted FD for $5 into $15. I think he's probably just putting his remaining $5 with any made hand anyway.

      I think KQs is just too strong to check preflop. You are ahead of his limping range, so you are raising for value.

      Postflop I always go broke with TPGK against midstacks. Especially on that board that has a lot of draws.

      On the river I prefer betting, villain is too passive to bluff here with a busted draw, and we are always calling a bet from him here, so we are giving him the choice whether to go to the showdown for free or value bet us.

      KQ is way ahead of his limp/call range, I´d also raise pf to get more money in with good hand
      postflop is ok, he would call you down there with Kx hands
