      hello MeAmor22

      cbet the flop bigger, turn isn't a cbet while you no longer have initiative :(

      my reasoning:
      you raise it big preflop for value, and you flop TPTK on a super dry flop multiway. this situation really sucks because people can have K9/555/999 type hands. they can also have KQ/KJ/KT/QJ/JT, A9/A5, TT/77 hands that will probably call this flop and for that reason along with being multiway, you have to bet much closer to the size of the pot. on the flop i bet ~$0.46 at least.

      after you get raised i think it's just a fold. they aren't raising a gutshot or middle pair/bottom pair type hand. they aren't raising top pair, because they probably don't have AK - fish like to put you on AK a lot and so they aren't scared of that (which happens to be your hand).

      i expect to see K9, 999, 555 a lot here.

      another reason for folding the flop is to do with planning. are you really happy about donking out on the turn? what about check/folding the turn after calling the raise on the flop (might as well fold on the flop and save yourself 19bb)?. what about check/raising the turn (this sucks because you are overplaying your hand, and if you want to get it in on the turn, why not just get it in on the flop with a 3bet?). so you see you can't plan very well for the turn once you get raised on the flop.

      i have rambled on a little here but these are my thoughts on the hand. i may well be wrong :D

      Hello MeAmor22,

      Rather Bet/Fold it on the flop instead going broke vs unknown guy. There are a lot of traps which the guy could have there and strong hands as sets. If you even want to continue then rather get it in on the flop.

      Best Regards.
