      Hi,


      I like betting the turn because when he doesn't c-bet K86 2t it looks like he either has some weakish showdown value or he's clowning around with a big hand, so betting and getting him to call with worse hands will beat check/calling against opponents who suck at valuebetting thin. If he raises the turn there is no need to get all suspicious, he wouldn't raise weak showdown value and he'd bet most draws/air on the flop, so he's just nutted somehow.

      River is close and we could really go with any line depending on specific reads on villain. If he's a bit clingy and capable of calling against with stuff like JJ/8x bet/folding is fine, if not it's really tough to get called by worse on that river so betting doesn't serve much of a purpose. That doesn't mean check/calling is good either, since from the begining with didn't really put him on a draw. So overall I think it's a check/fold without further reads.

      As played when he jams the river, best fit: TT.


      Hope it helps.
