      This one confusing me. After i played this, I thought it was good play, but now I have doubts. Although, equity looks good to me:

      Board: K:diamond: 4:diamond: 2:diamond:  7:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    47.99%  38.81%   9.18% { KK+, 44, 22, AKs, KQs, Td9d, 6d5d, AKo, KQo }
      MP3    52.01%  42.83%   9.18% { AdKs }

      Hello staktas,

      Doubt that he would have even hands like KK+ here in his range. But most likely rather some worse Kx hands. Therefore our equity should even be better. The real question is if he would even play with Kx hands so aggressively?

      Against some Kx hands included of course we are getting the coinflip situation but overall in those spots we might even see much stronger hands. But as he is so loose we might even expect to see worse Kx hands and of course we still have nutFD, so ain't a huge mistake if you even played for the stacks.

      Usually against very passive opponents we might even at some point just Bet/Fold the turn for the reason that we wont see many worse hands there in his range than made flushes or sets. They tend to play rather passively their Kx hands.

      Best Regards.
