      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two-pair, kings and fours (Kd Qh)
      BU shows (Kh Jh)

      Hero wins with two-pair, kings and fours (Kd Qh)

      Was happy to flop top pair 2nd kicker here but a lot less comfortable when both opponents called my two-thirds pot bet on the flop. Went into way ahead, way behind mode against button check-calling turn and river. Not an ideal spot to be in with top pair 2nd kicker but turn bet was small and folding the river seemed too weak. Thoughts?

      Hello Brevvy2190,

      Rather 2nd barrel the turn than Check/Call it, we need to protect our hand. He may easily just Check behind his FDs or whatsoever draws. But while we still can get a lot value from a lot of weaker Kx/weaker pairs/draws type of hands.

      Best regards.
