      MP2 shows a pair of kings (Ks 8s)
      Hero shows (8h 7h)

      MP2 wins with a pair of kings (Ks 8s)

      Played horribly? I know sometimes checkraising the flop might give me a couple free cards but that's probably -EV play long term right? Not sure how I could have lost less on this hand unless I checked the flop...

      Hello UTGDog,

      Standard situation to Bet the flop & Bet the turn. We most likely can get even fold equity there vs his range on the turn and of course our hand is still strong enough. We can't even be sure if we get the implied odds if he bets big on the turn which very likely will happen.

      Best Regards.
