  • KJ open from ep, flop and turn good, what's the best bet sizing here?

    Hi Guys, A bit of a loose opening here, I don't do this too often from ep. Cbet flop, get called, turn is great but I somehow bet too small? I am afraid a big turn bet here will make villain think I have a hand like AK, KQ, and is the river bet also too small? Villain does not seem to want to fold his hand (he mucks JJ) so should I bet big on the river? I would expect him to 3bet JJ and not just call so I was thinking he had some small pair.

    Nice hand!

    Pre isn't all that loose from MP, for me it's actually a standard open at the majority of tables.

    I like your postflop betsizings, although I would probably bet slightly bigger (60c) OTT. But your reasoning seems good given that villain's coldcalling and flop calling range will consist of a lot of small/medium pairs (especially 9x) here.

    You might consider checking river as two draws bust out, but I feel like people are less likely to bluff paired boards OTR in general so I would go for value from pairs like 9x which won't bet themselves mostly.
