      MP: $53.06 (106.1 bb)
      CO: $82.15 (164.3 bb)
      BTN: $57.88 (115.8 bb)
      Hero (SB): $109.55 (219.1 bb)
      BB: $51.72 (103.4 bb)
      UTG: $92.53 (185.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K A
      2 folds, CO raises to $1.50, BTN calls $1.50, Hero raises to $6.50, BB folds, CO calls $5, BTN calls $5

      Flop: ($20) 8 T J (3 players)
      Hero bets $10, CO raises to $30, BTN folds, Hero calls $20

      Turn: ($80) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $45.65 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Anon table.

      Both Villains are reg as I remember, CO definitely is.
      Preflop call?
      On the flop I have a good draw, but had bad feelings about cbetting. JJ/TT/88 are all definitely in his flatting range, plus I block draws very much, so if I get raised, I dont think I can go broke +EV. After his raise, unfortunately I have the odds to call with 12 outs... :(
      What would you play on the flop? I was thinking about ch/calling with my equity.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Their calling range is most likely highly towards PPs and which this board hardly hits. I might even go instead for Check/Call cause it's very likely that we get raised here. As you even say both are regs then I don't see them flatting with very wider range being a bit deeper rather towards PPs.

      Though that's true that I am very often towards CBetting such boards with our equity but I am just not happy once I get raised and this most likely will happen. At least now we got decent implied odds to Call so I'd play also Call flop and reevaluate the turn.

      Best Regards.
