      Once you raised the turn, you were pot committed, so there's no way you could get away on the river. And you also should've raised the turn, because any J, T or K would be a terrible card. And even an A or Q wouldn't be great because it could potentially split the pot.

      If you are 100% sure he has KK+, and he bets that entire range on the flop, you should probably not raise. If he has AA he's going to fold, and you have 0% equity vs KK which is the only hand he's going to continue playing. Rather you should just call, because you have 45% equity vs KK+ and you need only 32% equity to make the call here, then see what happens on the river.

      Hello nineshine,

      If we assume that then might be even safer to just fold it preflop. But overall it ain't a mistake to call it. We wont get away there either.

      But you must understand that you don't really get the implied odds on the flop to Call for GS. ;)

      Best Regards.
