      Although villain shows a lot of strength on the turn, I have some difficulties in finding a fold on such a dry board. Badly played or just bad luck?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:

      CO:
      $6.59
      BU:

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, K.
      3 folds, SB raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.90, SB calls $0.60.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, kings and sixes(Ac Kc).
      SB shows three of a kind, sixes(6c 5c).

      SB wins with three of a kind, sixes(6c 5c).

      Hello joaoleao,

      The problem is that there aren't that many hands which would Check/Raise. Even I am not sure if he a Kx would raise there this way in 3bet pot. You could put him on bluff but is he capable of doing that? Therefore I might even consider making the crying fold on turn.

      The problem really is that his range doesn't really include a lot of hands which we beat.

      Best regards.
