      Hello maheepsangari,

      There ain't going to be many hands which pay you on the flop, just FDs maybe. We might want to turn our hand into bluff-catcher right there while it's kinda 3bet pot.

      If we do CB then seems to be fine.

      Best Regards.

      Are you saying I shouldn't C-Bet the flop also or C-Bet flop and check turn?

      Being in so-called 3bet pot I'd Check/Call even at some point if I don't see many worse hands paying us.

      I have posted many such hands where I have a good pair in a 3-Bet pot but an overcard like A. Do you recommend check/call rather than betting in these kind of hands?

      I always thought that I'd have some equity with my Kings and some fold equity would be added as well. A acts as a scare card to him too as it does for us.

      Why would you need fold equity there?
