      While KJo is a bit of a garbage, often over played hand in general, in this spot - with the button, in position against a weak-loose player (58-28 1.0)... you've got to put in the 12 cents.

      Had you hit that flop, the BB's near-pot donk would have been at least 30 cents. That's more than half his stack. After MP1 folds, raise behind to put BB all-in. Wierd-midstack B could bet out here with any kx, two diamonds, 8x, even some underpairs (QQ-22). Having played and hit TPGK I am not folding to a midstack who flatted preflop (almost always means he is a casual fish, not a mid-stack-strategy player).

      Hello Tombic,

      The problem is that you also have to know the opponent. I mean you can't just hope to Call and hit always. Since with just Calling you wont play the hand very profitable:

             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    47.33%  45.19%   2.14% { KJo }
      UTG+1  52.67%  50.53%   2.14% { 22+, A2s+, K8s+, Q8s+, J8s+, T8s+, 98s, 87s, 76s, A7o+, K9o+, QTo+, JTo }

      As you see you rather even behind. Therefore I guess I might even 3bet at some spots rather than Call but of course it also depends on the opponent.

      Best regards.
