    K6s is junk. Muck preflop.

      Lets assume for a sec that it was k - 9 s and the flop was 10 of spades 5 of hearts and 9 of diamonds

        You cannot play pre-flop with that thinking, you will lose 9 time out of 10!

        Your cards were very low. With the kind of hand you are very loose! You would be more profitable if you tighten your play a lot!

          K9s should be mucked pre to.

          But back to the original hand.

          K6 suited is the kind of hand that you might play in position if you were super deep and you felt like you had an edge on your opponents. by super deep I mean 150 to 200 bb's. Given you are only 50-60 bb's deep and more importantly the villain is only 35bb's deep its a clear fold. The reasoning behind this is the implied odds. It just can never be mathematically profitable to be in this spot when the maximum return is 35bb's.

          Another reason that you should always be folding these hands is because even when you get a piece of the flop you are more than likely still behind. Even if you flopped a K instead of a six it is a horrible spot as there are so many Kx hands that are in the villains calling range that beat you.

          The cbet on the flop isn't awful but when you get called you have to give up on the hand. What are you actually beating that's in his calling range? Being in position you get an opportunity to take a free card on the turn. Not taking that and betting inflates the pot to the point that the villains shove on the river makes complete sense. Your sixes do have showdown value so why inflate the pot and make it profitable for the villain to shove the river?

          But seriously............fold pre. This is the open skill league. Getting clever wont get you paid it will just bleed chips.

            K9s is still too weak to play in a league game.. muck preflop also. In league games, to score well in them, I cannot be playing marginal hands and possibly leaking off chips.

                  I also would fold this hand pre, especially considering that there is a Villain with just 390 chips and probably might shove. Secondly, K6 runs bad in many spots , even when they are suited.

                    its for cash primarily so some adjustment needs to be made for stack sizes and the blinds increasing. But it should give you an idea of when you should and shouldn't be getting involved in a pot. especially in the early stages of a tournament when stacks are quite deep in relation to the blinds.
