      Hey!

      I'd rather c/f this turn actually. There are so many hands that hit: KQ, QT, QJ, T8, KT, Q9.

      On the other hand, there aren't many worse hands that still pay us off. Only JT, T9 and KJ.

      As you can see, there are many more hands that beat us and these hand will all check back and we might be able to value bet the river.

      So the idea here is to c/f. If he checks back, he probably has one of the hands w beat and we can fire a small vbet on a blank river (1/2 pot) :s_cool:


      Cheers!

      What I though was that the raise at the flop will scare the KQ, KT.
      I dont need to count on that in future hands?

      Most people will call the flop with KQ and KT becaue they have gutshot + overcard(s) and people don't like folding :D

      So you can count that on your opponents calling range, unless he's completely fit and fold.
