      Hi!

      Ohhhh, I certainly would. Def. ahead of their limping range, KJo makes good top pairs which is enough to win at showdown vs. weak players. And they are even likely playing both dominated Kx and Jx.

      Against most players I'd cbet this flop though. It's dry, we block a few FD combos with our J while having backdoor equity, and we have nothing but K high (even though K high is the nut unpaired).

      So it's close and (like most poker thoughts) player dependent. We will get floated a lot on such a board, our opponent might play loads of Ax and might not fold pockets to a single barrel. So I don't mind checking behind either, depends a bit if he plays fit/fold or not. Against unknowns I'd probably bet to find out.

      Hello BGawli,

      Preflop: I don't mind even isolating but yeah, of course it's gonna be cruel to play it OOP, especially when you have loose opponents. You can as well just Check it here.

      As played
      Postflop: Yeah, missed the CB here. :( But as you miss the CB then rather fold the turn, you ain't getting good implied odds.

      Best Regards.
