      Hello tadcka,

      And I guess I haven't evaluated your hands either. :D

      Turn: Most likely I would still consider Betting the turn a bit bigger ~$9 even. :) Cause if he has a draw or Ax hand he is willing to pay most likely. No need to give him good odds there.

      As played
      River: Kind of dumb spot. As long I doubt that he has anything similar like KJo/KTo in his flatting range there our equity isn't going to be very good. We would need ~23% equity and for example against:

      Board: K:diamond: 2:diamond: A:spade:  K:heart:  T:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    79.17%  66.67%  12.50% { 22, AKs, KTs+, QdJd, AKo, KQo }
      UTG+1  20.83%   8.33%  12.50% { KsQc }

      A range of this we ain't getting it. So therefore our only hope is that he is bluffing, but could he even do that? :)

      Best Regards.

      Actually you evaluated some of my hands several months ago when I was at micros :D

      And about that hand, he surprised me by showing AA, didn't expect something similar at this spot, knowing his 3bet percentage. :f_biggrin:

      But it is veeryy rare such a fancy play, so in the future I will know that I need to bet turn bigger in such situations. Thanks :)
