      Hi,

      Villain is fishy but not super loose. Saw him call down 3 streets in BB vs SB after 3xbb from SB with 66.

      Plan was to cbet flop for protection and info.
      Turn: fold or check behind
      River: c/c everything until ~1/2 PSB or bet/fold 1/3 PSB with this 2nd king on the board and busted FD.
      I expect to get a call from most PP's Jx and being raised by better.

      Then by all means make it bigger preflop :)

      This is way off. You either bet for value or bet to let him Fold
      So I would check back the Flop and bluffcatch if he is aggro or delayed vBet it

      As played on the river is a smoothcall so nice hand there :)

      What is your question here btw?

      Sounds good :) How big should we make it then PSB+1?

      Do you really want to check back on a FD K-high board with SD possibilities? Since Kx is less common then Ax, I thought about protection(/value).

      Would you also bet/fold the river 1/3 PSB if he checked to us?

      Well I wrote down my thoughts process and wandered if it was good. So I will add that question the next time :)

      $10-$12 is fine preflop

      Well you want to bet for value as you state. Value against what besides random Jx? There isn't that much he can have because of the scattered around. He can have 7:c6, 8:c7, 9:c8, J:cT, A:cT, K:cT, A:cK;c as flushdraws. That is 5-6 combo's

      Furthermore you block QT for the straightdraw

      Kx is unlikely because you have QQ to block KQ, KJ is also unlikely but KT,K9,K8 is out there

      I think your vBet on the Flop is a bit too thin that it is +EV. Besides your hand is a 2streets of value hand against villain. I rather want to extract value from Turn/River then

      I would bet $15 on the River as played when he checks to me

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      I expect to get value from most PP's as well.

      Ok. I agree the hand would play easier to start betting from the turn. If any club shows up we are done and must fold.

      Thanks
