      Hello psydreamer,

      Flop: The problem is that we will be OOP and also if the K will come that will very likely him to make fold with a lot weaker hands. Also for the reason that we are OOP it will be hard to extract value from him. Therefore I'd say just fold the hand to avoid any further mistakes, if we had position we could consider. We are just going for the GS, which ain't that many outs either, even if it's a minraise.

      As played
      Turn: That's exactly the spot where we could put ourself when we Call the flop, we hit more draws and something similar, and then continue with it. I'd just fold it here and give it up and wait for better spot. Even against such a bet.
      River: Once again, a good example where we could put ourself when we Call flop & turn. We hit our 2pair and now think that they are so good, even a Kx beats us now easily. And also there are a lot more better 2pairs.

      Best regards.
