  • Tough spot KK

    Im not sure what to do here i really don't like a x/f but seen as villain bets multi way after calling a big 3b pre his range should be pretty strong and i don't see why he would want to bet anything but Ax+ on the flop and i cant see him coming along pre with stuff like KQs. He said in chat fold so he obviously wants a call i think.

    In a spot like this, since I raised preflop, I'm going to lead the flop. If they have ace/rag, they may fold and can also fold smaller pairs.

    When the opp is checked to, it gives them a free shot to turn a smaller pair into a bluff... where I can be folding the best hand. It basically turns my cards face up saying that I have a pair and am scared of an ace.

      Hmm i could bet KK and get value but if i bet flop and he calls with some pairs he can still bet the turn when i check,its just a horrible spot as i dont expect him to think i can fold some big pairs so he would be value owning himself with smaller pairs as he dont know if im a calling station plus i do have Ax here myself.

        If they call (flop raise would be an easy fold for me), don't assume that I'd check every turn. Depending on what my notes are on the opp (how sticky they are with Ax)... I can easily fire the turn here too (continuing to rep an A or I can rep a flush).
        If the turn is checked, to a non-club, then all the big aces are basically gone from my range, as I'd need to bet them again.
