      Very frustrating hand, the opponent is a calling station which is good so I tried to bet on all streets.Should I bet more on the flop to the point where I push all in?Maybe calling stations will reconsider calling??

      I think you can c/f river. You don't really have a value bet on that card, and calling stations are unlikely to bet weak one pair hands when you check. Idealy you both check and he shows 5x or whatever. I think your bet sizing is ok, possibly more on turn for max value vs draws.

      This. Just bomb every street against those players with any top pair+ hand until you hit a card which kills your hand somewhat, like that Kc. He's calling down with any Kx and any 2 clubs most likely, and like john said, those players won't bet worse than AA when checked to, and also rarely bluff diamonds. So you can comfortably check/fold that river if he bets.

      Sometimes you'll even see him check behind with trips or a low flush, which is something you should make a note of because it constricts his river betting range to exactly bluffs and the nuts, or something very close to it, meaning you can bluff-catch more serenely in the future.


      Hope it helps.
