      Hello diversfx,

      Preflop: What worse do you expect to Call you? Of course there are worse hands but while I don't know how the opponents play, I don't like raising.
      Postflop: What worse hands will Call you here if you raise? I guess I am just Calling this and reevaluating turn. But as you raised you can't really do much here but I wouldn't even be surprised when time to time people come up with sets here or even overpairs. Going broke here is very close, you have to know your opponent. Rather take pot control line in those situations, TPTK ain't the strongest hand.

      Best regards.

      I had a fair read on this villain, they had raised a fair amount with Kx Qx etc with high WTS stats. So i just decided to go with my read. But I see your thinking. Thanks again
