      Was not sure what to do at the flop, there are just so many oportunities for draws and sets but at the same time i just cant see myself folding in this spot when there is such a small raise and a loose player calling.

      Well, it was a good hand.

      In the flop ther wher a lot o draws available, or even a straight hand. The range of your opponent is huge, so he could get something with this flop, but your KK remains far ahead.

      The opponent seems to a be a fish, by the stats and by the shortstack.

      This kind of players love to play with draws, so with your 3bet you get value from all of those stright draws, flushdraws or even a pocket pair.

      I think that you could put your opponent all in already in the flop, but, in this case the final result would be the same.

      Agree with the Kony, The raise on the flop is quite bad i think (the sizing i mean), it shove or fold situacion.. As you say, you can't fold the kings, So it's just one way to raise-shove all in on the flop, not leaving him 8BB on the turn.. If the turn would've been 9, what action then would be yours?

      It's the desicion you have to make on the flop, you gonna stack-off in this kind of flop, or gonna fold if opponent would show aggresion? What your action or danger other streets? That's the question you have to ask yourself. :)

      Hello Musematte,

      If we raising the flop then very often we are making a lot worse hands to fold. And a lot stronger hands are very often ending up trapping you. Therefore I'd just Call the flop and reevaluate the turn.

      If we raise then at least put MP1 all-in.

      Best Regards.
