      Turn: ($2.55) Q (2 players)
      SB bets $2.55, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.55.


      Villain is decent guy with 15/14/6.2/8.5 (vpip/pfr/3bet/aff) over 200 hands.
      flop is very wet but against guy with this agression afactor I couldnt fold on flop. my KK is strong and one more club would of give me second best flush.
      Turn misses and he bets potsize, which was more than enough for me to fold.
      Made really nasty taste but is ther anything else I could do?

      Tough one.

      When he pots the turn it starts to look like a made hand (flush, two pairs, set, straight) which don't have the odds to call against. On the other hand, he's so aggressive that he probably play his draws like this (Acx). I don't have equilator on this computer but I suspect your equity is on the low side against that range so I think I'd fold the turn.

      Hello Sinnology,

      I'd also take into account his CBet raise here very often. If it's as well kinda big, you might even just ship it since he such a aggressive opponent, just to avoid another to hit. Since he may easily even raise there with just Tx which tries to protect or even with FD or whatsoever. His range is pretty wide, for example this one:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 57,804% 57,321% 0,966% 41,713% KhKc
      Player 2: 42,196% 41,713% 0,966% 57,321% TT, 77-66, ATs, QcJc, AcKd, ATo

      As played your line, I guess I'd just fold it on flop to the raise, which is often times better than Calling. Since we likely only Call for the flush and we even can't be sure that it will be good enough, while he could as well raise with AcX.

      Best regards.
