BB: 1542.20 (Hero)
UTG calls 10, HJ raises to 45, CO folds, BN folds, SB folds, Hero calls 35, UTG calls 35
But with the stacks the way they are, I wasn't sure whether to bet, c/c or c/f. Which do you think is the best option?
Let me elaborate a bit more. I don't expect HJ to have many 4s in his range. By betting I can represent JJ or KK pretty well, but he might figure I could also have KJ.
So here comes question 1: what's the weakest hand you'd call with in this spot? I thought HJ might fold AA but would call with any flush.
When I check I think he basically knows I have KJ and by betting he is representing a backdoor flush. But the spade flush draw and the straight draws have missed, so there should be many bluffs in his range.
So the second question is: should I call of fold?
Also, these are my standard bet sizings on the flop and turn. After playing this hand, I figured I'd have avoided the river trouble by potting the flop and turn. Was my bet sizing an important mistake? Looking at this hand in a vacuum I think it is, but I'd like to be able to use this smaller sizing when I have a draw or a hand that I'm not sure is best and needs some protection. Perhaps I should always bet the pot in such a dynamic board and use smaller sizings in other boards?
