      Preflop: Hero is CO with J, A.
      5 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, BU calls $1.50, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($3.75) 2, K, 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($3.75) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.00, BU calls $2.00.

      River: ($7.75) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $6.85(All-In), BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $7.75.

      Villian's stats are 64/14 for vpip/pfr. I only have 15 hands, but i think he is a loose opponent.

      I wanted to check raised him on the flop, because i thought he was an aggresive opponent. but he checked. I made a delayed cbet on the turn, but i'm not sure whether i made the right move or not.

      Also, i'm not sure, whether my all in at the river is correct or not, because i only hit a middle pair. I concluded that he had nothing, and that's why i bet all in.

      Well, I don't mind this move given how loose villain appears.

      But there's also nothing wrong with checking the river for pot control and bluff induce. I think this is a situation where, if you bet the River, only better hands will likely call you (i.e. completed flush or weak king) whereas if you check, you may get a bluff out of villain or get to see a cheap showdown with a hand that has 'showdown value' but which may not be best.

      Hey Hongchang,

      I think this flop is quite good for a c-bet, you have a scary K on it, and this type of opponent will have to fold many hands there. The board is slightly drawy, so I don't think giving away free cards is a good idea.

      I dont like the flop, I dont like the turn and I dont like the river :)

      as played, the river is a check-call spot for me.

      Hey hongchang,

      after only 15 hands I wouldn't deviate from standard play and just c-bet this flop as it's quite nice with K out there despite the possible FD.

      As played, I would check turn as well, because 7 :heart: isn't really a card that could have helped you. And about the river I agree with wuusaa, check/call is the best to not isolate yourself to better hands and sometimes even induce a bluff.

      Regards,
