      Hi,


      I'd either 3-bet preflop or as played check/raise the flop as alternate lines. Hard to say which one is best with no reads.

      With your line I'd bet slightly bigger on all streets for value, we shouldn't expect Kx to fold for a few extra blinds and draws will pay full pot as well quite often. On the river I can't see us not happily felting this hand either, bad players will sometimes show up with 66/AK/AA in that spot, random 2dXd are possible tho unlikely, KT might even value-raise there if he's good enough to see it. No way we avoid the cooler if he somehow shows a horribly played KK.


      Hope it helps.

      This made me laugh soooo hard :f_biggrin: . It's exactly what he had. The reason I bet out is because he would have difficulty folding Kx there to a donk bet but if I c/r he might fold it somewhere on the turn (I think...). I didn't 3bet pre because, although not many hands for stats, he was tightish, so just went for set value OOP. Don't think that's a big mistake. Against standard players I would indeed 3bet pre in this spot.

      Thx for the help in all the hands!
