cbetting IP with KK on A82r is a very very bad play, DUCY?

I usually call river too, tbh. Lots of people think they can turn their PP into a bluff here because they are so sure we don't have an Ace. (Which is also why checking this flop with AK is good for balance)Edit: Or they have total air and are firing for the same reason. Villain was BB, his range is almost ATC here.

i understand checking back flop and calling turn and river... but do we also need to cbet to balance out the times we do have AK and get villain to call down with a worse ace?..if we check back flop with AK and villain leads turn and we raise... isnt he mostly folding his AxXx hands?

This is probably a pretty noob question, but what kind of bankroll is considered micro limits? Anything under $1000? $500?
Well if you're playing under the "20 buyins for a level" rule which is a fair one to follow, then normally micros are 50nl and below, and small stakes is 100nl and 200nl.

IPITS, the river is a fold sometimes but calling is fine too.

Why would we want to balance our cbetting range with a hand that has such good showdown value? Cbet like JT here or hands that have no other real value, or like pocket 5's. KK has far too much value as the 2nd nut one pair hand in this spot.And if we checked back AK why would we want to raise the turn? I mean it's easy to say "lol I has AK I raise". But really we're getting value maybe from AJ or a retard with an ace, while we lose a ton of money to AQ, sets, other two pairs, etc. definitely not a spot to raise AK on the turn this dry

10K hands isn't nearly a large enough sample size to determine anything. I'm not even sure if 30K is enough.

Are you posting the hand twice to increase the villain's opportunity to raise the flop?
