      Hi adsefghijk,

      i'm evaluating your hand as Homework for pokerschool.

      I'm wondering why you raised UTG1's bet pre-flop. I don't think KJo is a such a good hand against an early raiser and you should just fold.

      As played:
      i don't like your bet on the turn. You have no hand and opponent seems to like the showdown so you have little fold equity. So yes, i think you should have played check/fold.

      Good luck at the tables!

      If you're going to 3bet preflop, you should definitely conti-bet that gross flop.

      However, I would fold KJo when confronted with that type of raise ahead of you.

      Hello adsefghijk,

      Why do you 3bet in first place against UTG and his stack? :) I'd say pretty standard fold there. But otherwise I guess I'd just give up my hand, I doubt that we gonna make many hands to fold on there anyways. If we had the then we could consider betting.

      Best Regards.
