      Looking back now, I know that my re-raise on the flop was absolutely pointless (only isolating myself against better hands). But I'm not sure whether to fold or to call CO's raise here. The only hands in his range I can beat are flush and straight draws, two pair and TPTK.


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Turn: ($12.42) 2 (2 players)

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of kings(Kc Ks).

      CO wins with two pairs, jacks and sevens(Jc 7c).

      consider the size on the pot you can´t really do anything else either than shove or fold and with overpair in 3-bet pot I like shoving, since he can still have a lot of draws and if he is calling your 3-bet with J7s he would also very likely get all-in there with any draw
