      Hello Nemanjal87,

      Welcome to the NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Also moved your thread to correct spot where the Hand are evaluated. :)

      While you are pretty much committed anyways and your normal raise on the flop would be over your half stack you can as well just ship the flop. If they have any Kx hands they are calling anyways. We don't want to give them any good odds for any draws. But normal raise would be ~$1,50 but it's almost your stack so just ship.

      Best Regards.
