Translating the tweet note / boom link: In the bb with red KK we 3bet a btn open and flop 795ccc, we have no clubs and cbet...

Flop was 795 all clubs, we can't redraw to better than we can represent. Turn Ace river Ace check down...

Well that was lucky! So how should we play the hand? Not cbet as the aggressor? When the turn Ace comes - rep it by betting? Or check call a bet oop?

We check to showdown. Standard, anything you would do different?

I think you played it correctly. The hand is made much more difficult because it has to be played OOP, but there is nothing we can do about that here.

On the flop I think it's a good idea to c-bet to charge possible draws especially singleton clubs. Maybe could c-bet a little smaller, but at least something over half the pot in my opinion.

On the turn I think it's good to check and probably call at least once if it's a reasonable size. If we bet here then we are potentially just folding out hands that we are beating like smaller PP that didn't flop a set, and giving value to many hands we are losing to like that possible singleton A of clubs that he was calling on the flop with or actually flopped sets, etc. Sets aren't going to fold because they think that you just paired your AKo and they are going to get even more value on a safe river card. Stuff like that.

On the river since he checked back the turn I think it's a check/call of a reasonable bet size, but it's probably close. It could be a check/fold also, it just depends on what you think at the time I guess.

What did he have? I'm gonna guess TT with the T of clubs.

Thanks Tyirl for looking at this hand,

You were close on the pair, they had Jack of clubs.
