      Hero (BTN) $ 50:

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BTN with T :heart: T :diamond:
      1 fold, MP raises to $2, 1 fold, Hero calls $2, 2 folds

      Flop: ($4.75) 7 :spade: 4 :heart: K :spade: (2 players)
      MP bets $3.39, Hero calls $3.39

      Turn: ($11.53) K :club: (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $6.50, MP raises to $15.23, Hero folds

      What would you do on the turn?

      I opted against checking it to showdown because of the multiple possible draws.

      Also if we were in villain shoes is it good to play Kx this way? I doubt it because all the draws would be checked back and get a free card and there are quite a lot of them possible.

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Flop: You should be already asking if it's a great idea to float even here while you don't even know the opponent. If he is tight then he will have a lot of Kx hands in his range, nor you don't know what's his 2nd barreling tendencies.

      As played
      Turn: You ain't getting much value here most likely and nor you ain't making any better hands to fold. I'd just Check it behind while he could as well be trapping and he ain't betting the river without having a hand anyways.

      Best Regards.

      Not really cause he wont really get called from a lot worse hands but you will find those kind of players who think they are fancy. :D He might also think that he balances his Checking range.
