      Fold preflop/is call ok ?

      On the flop, what I wanted to achieve with my bet - to find out where I am and if I have a chance to win this pot.

      Turn - is betting here ok ? K can be a scare card for an opponent.

      Hello acceleration123,

      Preflop: Rather just fold it, you are putting yourself into big trouble and hard decisions postflop and could easily make a lot of mistakes there.

      As played
      Postflop: Donking is doable because of the mid-pair but I'd just give it up on turn, he ain't betting into us anyways with a lot worse or as played raising.

      Best regards.
