      It is always a tricky bit KK on A high board.

      You are in position and villain has checked before you.

      The way I see it:

      If you had a hand (say AK, AQ) how would have played the hand? how much would you have bet? because with just over 1/2 pot you are not really protected a hand you are trying to display. So someone could pick on that and raise bluff you. I'd rather check and reevaluate on turn or push.


      As played, you put yourself in a tough spot. I'll probably fold to the raise even though because of the shortstack of villain it is a minraise.

      So, Hero should bet pot size on the flop? thanks

      Hi,

      I would check back and see their action on the Turn as you have basically no info (relative position) on the players

      Also if you need both players to fold, multiply their fold contibet hence 60% of 60% = 36% for example
