      Hero shows (Kd Qh)

      UTG2 wins with two-pair, tens and threes (Th Ts)

      I think I played this hand realy bad, should of just Cbet the flop or given up completely.

      I was thinking if 3 players limped in and I had KQo I would proberly raise to try and clear the field. Where as if I had KQs I might limp because I may possible flop a better hand. Is this the right logic?

      Hello BigAl123456,

      Nah, limping doesn't make sense at all, with such hands we just don't want to play in multiway pots, rather we prefer to play in smaller pots. Therefore I like your isolating raise, but I don't really get why you didn't CBet the flop and then decided to bet on turn. I'd rather CBet the flop or just not bet at all, so likely give it up on turn as you played.

      Best regards.
