      You could try to raise that flop, you'd know where you too are going. If he raises, you're WB, if he calls, you are probably doing well, if he folds, well, then you beat him.

      By calling only he can make 3 barrel bet even with air, if he's that good. He could also be overplaying some weak PP. But you knever noww.

      Hello Tatarken,

      Well, you have to ask yourself why do you call in first place preflop? Afterwards what's the reason for calling the turn and folding on a blank river? :) Do you think he is giving easily up or what's the hope there?

      Don't have any information here so I can't really say either it's correct play or not, you might have already done a mistake preflop.

      Best Regards.

      Shouldn't we be folding this pre? Cold-calling with KJo seems kind of bad. I agree that we should raise the flop, but as played, on the river, what hands do we really beat? 87 might be doing this, but are KT and worse hands really 3-barrelling here enough to be able to call?

      I just called preflop because i was button, i like to float a lot of hands, it looks like profitable. Wrong idea?

      Depends a lot on your postflop skill but mainly if it's weak then 3betting and taking the pot down right away is better.
