Early off in 18:00 20+2 at stars. Average stack is about 1600 and I only have 10 hands with the opponent. his stats are 50/10/1.0/10. I'd like comments on all streets please. Should my chips be in on the turn or river here?

UTG+1 (t1650)
MP1 (t1030)
MP2 (t1340)
MP3 (t1770)
CO (t1400)
Hero (t1450)
SB (t1460)

Preflop: Hero is Button with K[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], K[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img].

I like the turn check and the river call.

Nothing I can think of that I would do different.

I was feeling like maybe it was a bit weak to just call the river bet.

In a cash game I might just call on the river with your hand because I don't wanna be reraised with deep stacks. But in a tournament having a bigger stack than the others is relevant. This guy will pay off with any jack and any heart if you raise about 3x here. The turn check is perfect. I think you raised a little too much on the flop. I treat a donk mini bet like a check, so I would just raise about 2/3 pot.

EDIT:
I just noticed the 9 [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] makes a straight flush. Now I'm not so sure since there's two hearts that beat you.

Jeanie - guess I'll take the dissenting viewpoint here. My understanding of the 180 player $20 + $2's is that the fields are weaker than the standard Stars multi. With that in mind I'm betting the turn for about half of my remaining stack with the intention of getting it all in. I do like your line against "known" opposition. How'd it turn out?

It's not 180 max, it's a full 20+2 tournament. Give me a minute and I'll grab the results.

EDIT: For results

BB has Ac 7s (two pair, jacks and sevens).
Hero has Ks Kh (flush, king high).
Outcome: Hero wins t790.

The only hand that would call a reraise is one that beats you. King-high flush if good but not the nuts with that board. BB could have the A[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] or maybe even filled up.

Calling your strong hand may seem weak but it is a smarter play in the long run. BB was probably making a blocking bet disguised as a value bet, which was also smart on his part.
