      CO:

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, K.
      MP1 calls $0.10, 3 folds, BU calls $0.10, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.50, MP1 calls $0.40, BU calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.55) 3, K, 6 (3 players)
      Hero bets $1.10, MP1 raises to $3.10, BU folds, Hero calls $2.00.

      Turn: ($7.75) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.90, MP1 calls $1.90.

      River: ($11.55) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.50, MP1 calls $4.50.

      Final Pot: $20.55.

      opponent has 78/10 agg 1 for 59 hands. i thought he was going to have a hand better than mine like k6 or 36. and i could have folded it there. i thought that the K there on the turn signalled that he was holding onto 36 instead and i was going to get value from him. i dont think the Q changed much except i would have won k6 and k3 now

      Hi,


      I'd just shove the turn to make sure all the money goes in before the river on that double flushdraw board but I understand your reasoning for betting small. Problem is you're only really targetting 63 exactly, which is pretty loose offsuit even for that guy. I'm down with it if you see some added benefit like villain capable of ninja shoving bluffs over it or felting draws/Kx regardless on the turn, in which case you don't lose much by not shoving yourself, otherwise I prefer a jam.


      Hope it helps.
