      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $25.00
      BU:
      $31.37
      SB:
      $9.96
      BB (Hero):
      $32.59


      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, A.
      CO folds, BU raises to $0.75, SB folds, Hero calls $0.50.

      Flop: ($1.6) K, J, 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.76, Hero calls $0.76.

      Turn: ($3.12) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.25, BU raises to $7.29, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $5.37.


      Villain is a 17/12 with an AF of 1.8 over 314 hands.

      I decide to flat my AK here since i sometimes want to have my calling range OOp nutted and also becuase he is so tight im not even sure i can get value by 3.betting him.

      i hit the flop and he c-bets 67% so my plan was to cc, if it was much lower say 45 or smth i would lead myself since the board is a bit drawy.

      The turn brings the flushcard so i lead out here. I dont want him checking back Adx or AT or KQ with a diamond. so im betting here for protection. Now he raises me. This could be somehting like KJ, KQ with a diamond or a flush. He might even have AK with a diamond or a set for all i know so i just fold.

      So my main questions here is. Preflop call good or bad? Turn lead good or bad?

      Hello RainbowPonny,

      As long his CB on the flop was kind of weak I wouldn't even mind to donk out the turn and protect our hand and also avoid him Checking behind. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
