    hi lion heart, the biggest mistake I see here is defending with K2s vs an early open. To open in early pos. in full ring games they really need to have some type of value hand, and K2s plays terrible vs the range of hands they are likely to hold. It is often dominated and even if you do flop a flush draw without the Ace on the board you are not drawing to the nuts.

    This is an easy fold imo

      Hi FR,

      I agree with folding preflop without reads, which you didn't give any.

      Post flop is fine until the river, I think we should lead the river, not check and offer him a free showdown with his weaker, bluff catching type hands. Once he does bet, the sizing should be concerning. The overbet looks like a play to get big value from strong 2nd best hands. And the line you took, indicates you will very often have trip aces or a flush on this river card (a strong hand). Villain's range is uncapped, he can have AA, AQ, QQ very easily here. Our hand is strong enough to call I think, since he can be overplaying AK or QdJd maybe, but I don't fancy putting more money in the pot facing this river sizing.
