      I'm betting more on the flop - mostly for protection but obvs still value - probably ~$0.45 since his stats slightly indicate he might be a calling-station type. Then I'd play bet/fold on turn - betting around $1.4.

      The river is a bad card and I'm just check/calling check/folding - calling only if he gives me good odds (even though I think you're often beat if he bets). I'm never betting out on this river though, and I certainly fold to his raise.

      I have a feeling that you are facing Jx here, probably J9 or JT.

      I agree with amp that you should have bet more on that flop against a station. Bet at least 3/4 pot on a drawy board. Most draws are "break even" at half pot but most drawers will pay alot more. So you need to exploit this and bet 3/4 to pot on double suited or double connected flops.

      I think id bet 40c myself. On being minraised im trippling his last sum.

      On the turn you need to keep in mind that station really does feel like a JT, which is really an aweful, dominate-me-please hand yet EVERYONE is addicted to playing it. A set would have escalated all in on the flop. There is nothing scary about that K except that KJ made two pair. As played at this point CO only has 3 bucks left. Put him all in.

      This. As played like ampifyd i'm not calling the river raise if i choose to blockbet it, but it's pretty safe to assume if you check and villain bets anything significant he has a hand that beats QQ, so check/folding is fine.


      Hope it helps.
