      2nd pair + nuts flush draw + overcard... hell yes I'm c-betting. i'm probably even making it more: ~$0.55 or so.

      Turn is a standard check behind. Hard to get 3 streets of value from weaker hands anyway so it's better to get flop & river then flop & turn in this specific spot imo.

      River is a standard bet. The size is ok, could be a bit bigger but not too big, you have the nuts and I don't really see people calling with much less then Kx + I don't see them calling huge bets with random Kx hands either. So unless they are extremely stationish I think you played the hand just fine.

      Agreed. You'd expect a lot of players to donk out with a made flush on the river so their ranges are weighted toward Kx a lot or stuff like JT that won't pay off anyway. I'd probably go up to $1.2 as a default because I just don't think it'll make them fold a K any more than $1 will. If any of them is a station I'd just go ahead and make it $1.6-$1.7, because then it's more likely they'll never fold a K and also more likely they might check a flush.


      Hope it helps.
