      Hi,


      I agree that it looks like the board is too dry for us to really force the action at first. The problem is, at nl5 you won't encounter many players that barrel often enough to warrant taking check/call lines with monsters past the flop and it's hard for them to improve when there is only one possible overcard to the board, so once I get a c-bet out of them I'll play it fast anyway. Since it's BBvsBU there is always a chance you look more full of shit than usual, which is good.

      I'd say check/raise the flop and felt it, or if you want to get funky (or feel like villain will bet/call check/fold Kx hands because he's tight) just c/c donk donk to make it cheaper for him to get curious.

      As played on the river I'd probably just shove, as I don't really think he's making that minraise with bluff-catchers too often. Either he's full of shit and he'll fold, or he was trickily playing Kx and he won't be able to fold it because he thinks he's the trapper.


      Hope it helps.
