      Heyhello,

      You can remove the results first of all ;)

      Secondly I think KK is a 1 street of value hand here so I do not bet the Turn here because you are mostly guessing what to do OOP most of the time (BB checks twice = has nothing)

      I think I rather c/c as bluffcatch sometimes rather than b/f or c/f but it really depends on the situation/timing/dynamics/statistics/reads

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Hi, I think that if you feel like you want to bluff you need to do this on the flopp. However I don't like how this hand is played. First you check the flop and let them see a free card. Then the flushdraw complete and you decide to bluff.

      The board on the turn basically hits a callers range very hard. They usually have flush,set, or Ax hands here. I know it sux but I think best line is to just give the hand up on the flop. Also I dont think I need to say what I think about 2nd question. GL! :D
