      this is an awful hand played by me. I was trying to represent king, but I got scared that he is not going to laydown or he does have a king himself... the standart play would be to give up on the turn?

      Hello benaars,

      Why do you 2nd barrel the turn? You can't really represent much there and as long you are given a free card then why not to take it?

      Best Regards.

      well but if I am trying to represent King I think it is obvious that I would like to bet turn i guess..

      Most likely I wouldn't do that but rather just Check behind as long we also have a draw ourselves and maybe even overcards as outs. :)
