      To me, I'm not sure why you call the flop then fold the turn to a brick. If you're worried that your opponent has hit the flush catching either an ace or king does nothing for you; if he has KQ only an ace helps (3 outer). Surely he cant be playing K7/Q7, so either you call the flop thinking you're ahead and shove the turn, or fold the flop.

      He could have something like AdKs giving TPTK and nut flush draw I guess, but if you knew that you wouldn't fold to the turn shove.

      Doubt it's AA/KK as he only flats your 3-bet, but not impossible. Also 77 is unlikely to call a 3-bet UTG. Either ways you're well behind on the flop so fold is the way to go (I think :f_biggrin: )

      Hello wnbMG,

      Why do you turn your hand in first place into bluff? Rather just CB the flop and take a look at further action. There is no way I am turning this way my hand into bluff by Check/Call while he could easily even ship with worse.

      Best Regards.
