      0,01/0,02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:spade: , A:diamond:
      UTG2 raises to $0,08, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0,24, 2 folds, UTG2 calls $0,16.

      Flop: ($0,51) K:spade: , 4:spade: , 2:heart: (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $0,26, Hero raises to $0,63, UTG2 folds.

      Final Pot: $1,40

      I have two notes on the player in PT3.
      First: 4-bet all-in with AQo
      Second: Made donk with top pair
      So I'm know he haven't got KK because he would go all-in with that. He probably had a top pair.
      I decide to raise because I don't want to see more spades.

      Hello jeszkar,

      Nah, I doubt that he had a TP, most likely just had some kind of bluff or a draw even. So overall it ain't a mistake to play it this way. If we knew the opponent a bit more then would be even an option to let him continue with his bluffs.

      Best Regards.
