      That's a disciplined fold.
      Did you think he had JJ, TT, KT, KJ, AK?

      My guess is that this is a split or a badly played K9. But the hands above are also possible.



      Board: K:spade: T:club: J:club:  A:heart:  K:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    25.68%   5.39%  20.29% { QsJd }
      MP3    74.32%  54.03%  20.29% { JJ-TT, AQs+, K9s+, AQo+, KTo+ }


      With this range we don't have a profitable call.


      We mostly go for a split, but we sometimes lose to a boat and we win rarely - this makes the fold good (even if we cut some hands that beat us from villains range)

      Board: K:spade: T:club: J:club:  A:heart:  K:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    34.09%   0.00%  34.09% { QsJd }
      MP3    65.91%  31.82%  34.09% { AQs+, KTs+, AQo+, KQo }



      Against this optimistic range we have 34% equity and if this would have been for a win, it would have been a break even call, but the equity is for a split - the conclusion, we are crushed.


      Well played =)

      only hand that you´re likely behind is AK
      I think he would likely c/r two pair+ on the flop, so I don´t really give him KT/KJ/TT/JJ. He may have there Qx, but he may also shove you missed flushdraw, since board is very scary if you have there only Ax, like AT/AJ

      consider all that you shouldn´t fold KQ
