40-80 borgata blind steal
 
Good game on a thursday night/friday morning. Button is a regular and more than likely is a winning player, but not by much. He knows I am TAG and has seen me steal and isolate 3-bet with weakish hands in late positions. He plays rather poorly after the flop.

Folded to me in CO and open with Qs6s
Button cold calls and the blinds fold.

Flop comes Ts 5s 3x
I bet and he calls like lightning. I have him on big cards

Turn is an offsuit deuce
I check and he checks behind

River is Ks
I bet and he calls

I think it's straight forward but I felt funny about the turn and wondered about check raising the river

bet turn, checkraise river, maybe fold preflop (i wasnt there and i trust you if these guys were giving you respect).

I was certainly getting enough repspect to open here. Most of my my blind steal attempts were working, and I had shown down only premium hands for last few hours. But I definitely think your line is right. I just wanted confirmation. I don't know why I froze on the turn given my read.

i like a turn bet, you got plenty of outs if you get raised. and should you be raised, you can c/r the river. as its played i dont think you can get away with a c/r on the river. and i dont think this river is good to c/r, it makes too many hands that you might have. you dont see him cold calling with AT, KTs, JTs? i think these hands came up in another post yesterday as a poll, maybe? if hes not a big winning player, then hes not taking these thin value bets, etc.

feel free to pick apart what i say, i havent been posting long, so im looking for feedback too

Because he has to call a turn raise, I would often check the turn. But it's also depends on my opponent.
