      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (9 handed)

      Button ($10)
      SB ($9.75)
      BB ($4.67)
      UTG ($4.65)
      UTG+1 ($1.70)
      MP1 ($6.40)
      MP2 ($7.74)
      Hero (MP3) ($18.52)
      CO ($16.39)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K, K
      4 folds, Hero bets $0.40, CO calls $0.40, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.95) 8, 7, 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.65, CO raises to $2.90, Hero calls $2.25

      Turn: ($6.75) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $4.69, Hero calls $4.69

      River: ($16.13) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Total pot: $16.13 | Rake: $0.80

      Results below:
      Hero had K, K (two pair, Kings and threes).
      CO didn't show
      Outcome: Hero won $30.66

      We both were pretty deep so I did't like calling him with TP in fear that he will show up 77 or 88, because after the turn 33 seemed unlikely. After the call on the turn I just hoped that he would not shove, because I couldn't call that. Was calling here good or should I RR on the flop?

      Hello Slimijs,

      While you said we are against aggressive opponent I'd say your line is totally fine. He will have hard time Calling with a lot worse on flop anyways and while being deep, rather take pot control, could easily be way ahead/way behind situation. And of course we will keep bluffs in the play as well. Otherwise seems to be fine as well. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
