      200 BBs EFF, Got Kings MP1, I make it $50 pre , cuz there are 2 limpers ( standard raise @ casino here). Got one caller on my right whom is a Looser TAG player, whom the hand before, 3 Street bluffs me with 2's on a QQ5,Q,3 when I have A5, he 3 street bluffs me and shoves river. I make a hero call and he mucks. $1000 pot. In this hand Flop goes 10,7,6 I check flop to trap, He checks back. Turn 5 ,I check he Bets 70 into 110 pot, I raises to 250 He calls. River 3 I check he puts me all in for $500 , I tank then call. He shows 89

      Terrible call or easy fold ?

      About the A5 hand : Who was the Pre-Flop Raiser? It is important to know what happened. Did you check/call as the PFR and he tried to push you off your hand? Did he just 3barrel into you, putting you on a capped range when he was the PFR? While your notes tell me that he is aggro, it doesn't tell me which spots he uses to take aggro lines.

      As played, I hate your turn c/r. Remember that your KK is relatively weaker on such a coordinated board. T76r5 sucks big time for you, you lose to 89s/76s/56s/57s, way more hands than a much drier board.

      I like the fact that you are thinking about inducing with a strong hand vs an aggro opponent. Maybe if you have KsKx on a board with 2 spades this might be a decent line to take.

      I would bet/call the Turn and probably fold the River. It seems pretty clear you are not sure what you want to achieve. What could villain bet/call the Turn with and then bluff the River?
      8X? 4X? backdoor flush draw? Or something that was improved by the Turn like 56/55/43? Or something that was trapping on the Flop?

      It is not too likely he traps a monster on such a wet board unless he has the nuts. He should be betting all sets for protection because he wants to get more money into the pot before action killing card comes. When he checks back FLop he probably has some pot-control crap like T9 or 87

      Just wanted to say these hands were played by a friend of mine :) I just wanted to prove him wrong that all his hands were wrong :P but he kept telling me he was right since his EGO is too high. Ty for your evaluation I was saying the same thing :D
