      See post below: misread your hand as being AK and not KK.

      Hello marvinsytan,

      What was your plan with Check/Raise on flop with KK? I understand if we have like an overpair on flop or something similar then we might consider such a play. But against that kind of board I don't really like the Check/Raise. Rather Check/Call against that kind of aggressive player and reevaluate his further actions. As played doesn't really make sense to fold it on turn when you Called the flop, rather fold it to his 3bet or if you Called the flop then Call as well the turn. But overall, I guess I'd rather make the crying fold there and wait for better spot, I expect him to have there very often the Ace unless you have some good reason to think something other or read.

      Best regards.

      My apologies.

      For some reason I thought I saw AK and not KK late last night.

      However if I plan on folding I'm doing so on the flop and not the turn because by then you have invested a lot of money and normally aggressive players will bet the turn after raising the flop.

      So bottom line, either fold the flop or call both streets imo.
