      Is my line correct ? What about villain´s check on the flop ? Could it be slowplay ? Should I call the turn ?

      Hello acceleration123,

      Flop: On such a flop you might as well just Check behind since they just wont Call that often with worse there. :) That's the problem but with Checking back you might still get value from hands like JJ or something similar.

      As played
      Turn: Doesn't make sense to bet it again, what do we want to accomplish with it? Rather just Check behind and hope to get a free showdown and your kings be good. As played, definitely fold it there.

      Best regards.
