    Hero (UTG): 65.48 BB
    CO: 29.75 BB
    BTN: 50 BB
    SB: 102.08 BB
    BB: 53.63 BB

    SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

    Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 4c Kd Kc 2h
    Hero raises to 3.5 BB, fold, fold, fold, BB calls 2.5 BB

    Flop : (7.5 BB, 2 players) 6h 8s 4d
    BB checks, Hero checks

    Turn : (7.5 BB, 2 players) Kh
    BB bets 5.63 BB, Hero calls 5.63 BB

    River : (18.75 BB, 2 players) 9c
    BB bets 14.06 BB, Hero calls 14.06 BB

    Flop: Good check back candidate? Or is my equity and showdown value so low that i should just bluff on the flop.

    Turn: Value raise or pot control and use position?

    River: Bluff catch or muck?

    its important to realize on this flop we shouldnt have a high betting volume. Its a board that doesnt hit our range strongly and where we have problems finding many strong hands and draws. In addition to this our opponent should have a very high leading range as his range will do quite well here and ours doesnt. Given many players dont lead enough, our betting frequency will drop even more.

    This hand is a clear check back even though the playability when checking isnt to great. Turn calling is fine. Raising a few KK with a straight blocker and some additional equity, like a turned FD is fine. This one calling is the play.

    On the river we call KK with a straight blocker most of the time here. With other KK we are mainly put in a spot where we become indifferent between calling and folding. The better our hand is connected to the board the more it seems we call, looking into a similar simulation for this spot. We also call more not having a FD-blocker vs having a FD-blocker.

    Folding your hand seems fine on this runout, especially given he is likely to be more value heavy given that he will check more value hands on the flop.

      I chose to just call also due to having a 4 in my hand. If I didn’t have a pair blocker, I was thinking this was a raise, but maybe that is not as important as having straight blockers + additional equity?

    I would say having that straight blocker, preferable in combination with picking up additional equity is the most important takeway, also looking at other solver outputs. This is often a common pattern
