i assume some slowplays from KK but raise/gii from 44,88,K8,765:

(PR+GD>, MPP+GD>, TP+BFD, BDW+BFD)-(44, 88, T2P, 765)
Turn (\$21.60) 5 (3 Players)
Hero checks, CO bets \$13, Hero raises to \$60.60, CO calls \$26.45
lets say he is only semibluffing turn with equity and then bets with nutted hands:

R1: 2PR+OE>, SET>, NFD, FD+OE> --- 28% of his flop calling range and has 66% equity v my hand.

ev = 0.33*(\$61) - 0.66*(\$39.4) = \$20 - \$26 = -\$6 = -12bb

lets add some more bluffing hands into his range (any fd or gd>):

R2: 2PR+OE>, SET>, NFD, FD+OE>, FD, GD> ---- 73% of his flop calling range

Assuming he bet/calls with the R1 and bet/folds with R2-R1

ev = 0.62*\$34.6 + 0.38*0.33*(\$61) - 0.38*0.66*(\$39.4) = \$21.4 + \$7.6 - \$9.8 = \$19.2 = 38.5 bb

Now lets compare this to the potential ev of c/c turn c/c river. Let's look at 3 different river types: pairing,flush and blank.

Pairing:

Our hand looks more like a weak made hand+fd so it makes sense for us to check pairing river representing weaker part of our range to let him continue his bluff and vbet straight.

Let's say he bets SET> for value and MPP<< as a bluff.

on a K river: ev = 0.7*(\$61)+0.12*(\$61)+0.18*(\$34.6) = 42.7 + 7.3 + 6.2 = \$56.2 (2/40)

on a 8h river: ev = 0.36*0.9*(\$61)+0.36*0.1(-\$39.45)+0.10*(\$61)+0.54*(\$34,6) = 19.7 - 1.42 + 6.1 + 18.6 = \$43 (1/40)

on a 8s river: he has (FH, 2NF>) 25% of the time which he will bet, (SET+!FH, ST, 2NF<) 38% of the time which he will check back and we win 100%, (TP<<) 10% of the time which lets say he will bluff 50% of the time because other 50% he gets scared that this card hit our range.

ev = 0.25*(\$61) + 0.7*(\$34.6) + 0.05*(\$61) = \$15.25 + \$21 + \$3.05 = \$39.5 (1/40)

on a 5 river: (FH, ST) value 57%, (TP3K<<) bluff 9.6%. with a bluff he risks 26.4 to win 47.6. alpha = 0.55/1+0.55 = 0.36. we should defend 64% of our range to stay unexploitable. i think by the river we don't have pure draws because we'd rather bet/fold it OTT so our range is pretty well-defined here as a bluff-catcher and occasional slow-played KK.

our range: K8+FD, KK, AA+(OE>, FD),, K+FD+GD>

since KK make up quite a large portion of our river range (62%) we don't need to defend any other hand.

ev = 0.57*(\$-13) + 0.33*0.91*(\$34.6) +0.33*0.09*(-\$13) + 0.096*(-\$13) = 7.4 + 10.4 - 0.4 + 1.2 = \$18.6 (3/40)

on 4 river: (FH, ST) value 45%, (TP3K<<) bluff 25%. again no need to defend K8 v a bluff

ev = 0.45*(\$-13) + 0.3*(\$34.6) + 0.25*(-\$13) = -5.85 + 10.38 - 3.2 = \$1.3 (3/40).

Conclusion 1: on pairing rivers we have a good ev.

EV = 1/40*[2*\$56.2 + \$43 + \$39.5 + 3*\$18.6 + 3*\$1.3] = 1/40(\$112.4+\$43+\$39.5+\$55.8+\$3.9) = 0.025*254.6 = \$6.4 = 13bb

Flush rivers.

2s: (FL) 25% (eq. 39%), (TP<<) 3%
3s: (FL) 25% (eq. 40%), (TP<<) 3%
6s: (FL) 22.4% (eq. 48%), (2PR_14<<) 17%
7s: same as 6s
Ts: (FL) 24.2% (eq. 43%), (2PR_14<<) 37%
Qs: (FL) 23.8% (eq. 23%), (2PR_14<<) 36%
As: (FL) 24.2% (eq. 24%), (2PR_14<<) 36%

ev1 = 0.25*0.61*(\$61) + 0.25*0.39*(-\$39.45) + 0.72*(\$34.6) +0.03*(\$61) = 9.3 - 3.8 + 24.9 + 1.8 = 32.2
ev2 = 0.25*0.6*(\$61) + 0.25*0.4*(-\$39.45) + 0.72*(\$34.6) +0.03*(\$61) = 9.2 - 3.9 + 24.9 + 1.8 = 32
ev3 = 0.22*0.52*(\$61) + 0.22*0.48*(-\$39.45) + 0.61*(\$34.6) +0.17*(\$61) = 7 - 4.2 + 21.1 + 10.4 = 34.3
ev4 = ev3
ev5 = 0.24*0.57*(\$61) + 0.24*0.43*(-\$39.45) + 0.39*(\$34.6) +0.37*(\$61) = 8.3 - 4 + 13.5 + 22.5 = 40.3
ev6 = 0.24*0.77*(\$61) + 0.24*0.23*(-\$39.45) + 0.4*(\$34.6) +0.36*(\$61) = 11.2 - 2.1 + 13.8 + 22 = 44.9
ev7 = 0.24*0.76*(\$61) + 0.24*0.24*(-\$39.45) + 0.4*(\$34.6) +0.36*(\$61) = 11.1 - 2.2 + 13.8 + 22 = 44.7

Interesting to note how ev increases the higher the the flush card falls on the river. As expected the higher the card the more flushes we beat.

Conclusion 2: On flush rivers we have +ev c/c spot.
EV = 1/40*(32.2+32+34.3+34.3+40.3+44.9+44.7) = \$6.6 = 13bb

Again if we had a bluff we would risk 26.4 to win 47.6. alpha = 0.55/1+0.55 = 0.36. So villain would have a incentive to defend 64% of hands that beat a bluff. The range (FL, ST, SET) makes up from 50 to 70% of his hands on a different flushing cards so he would have an incentive to defend that range.
That range has from 9% to 14% equity v our hand. So approximately

ev = 0.6*0.88*(\$61)+0.6*0.12*(-\$39.45)+0.4*(\$34.6) = \$32.2 - \$2.8 + \$13.8 = \$43.2

Average ev of leading flushing rivers is bigger than the ev of c/c almost any flush river except for Qs and As.

EV = 7/40*(43.2) = \$7.5 = 15bb

Conclusion 3: On flushing rivers Lead > C/C by 2bb.

Blank rivers. (24)

if we c/f 100% of the time:

ev1 = 0.41*(-13)+0.46*(\$34.6)+0.13*(-13) = -5.3 + 15.9 - 1.7 = \$8.9
ev2 = ev1
ev3 = 0.57*(-13)+0.38*(\$34.6)+0.05*(-13) = -7.4 + 13.1 - 0.6 = \$5.1
ev4 = ev3
ev5 = 0.3*(-13)+0.6*0.96*(\$34.6)+0.33*0.04*(-13)+0.1*(-13) = -3.9 + 20 - 0.2 -1.3 = \$14.6
ev6 = 0.3*(-13)+0.6*0.88*(\$34.6)+0.33*0.12*(-13)+0.1*(-13) = -3.9 + 18.2 - 0.5 - 1.3 = \$12.5
ev7 = ev5
ev8 = ev6
ev9 = 0.33*(-13)+0.5*0.68*(\$34.6)+0.5*0.32*(-13)+0.17*(-13) = -4.3 + 11.7 - 2 + 2.2 = \$7.6

EV = 24/40*((6/24)*8.9+(4/24)*5.1+(6/24)*14.6+(5/24)*12.5) = 24/40*(2.2+0.8+3.6+2.6) = (24/40)*\$9.2 = \$5.5 = 11bb

Now obviously villain can decrease that ev by bluffing more than just (TP1K<<). I won't get into it now but later i will look at how much he can decrease our ev.

Basically our total ev on all river cards is EV = 13bb (pairing) +13bb (flush) +11bb (blank) = 37bb. If you remember the ev of a check/shove was 38.5 bb so check-shove is slightly better under those conditions. Especially if you consider that villain can lower our ev significantly by choosing better bluffing frequency c/jam on the turn is preferable.
