      PokerStars - $0.02 NL (6 max) ZOOM - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BTN): $2.79
      SB: $2.15 Very Tight
      BB: $1.02 Tight
      UTG: $1.20
      MP: $2.00
      CO: $1.76

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has K:club: 5:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.06, fold, BB calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.13, 2 players) 3:heart: K:spade: 6:spade:
      BB bets $0.10, ?

      PF: Both the blinds are very tight so I decide to raise K5o for the fold equity, both pre-flop and post-flop. Should I stick to suited Ks or is this OK against TAGs?

      F: Villain donks which usually indicates weakness, he likely has a pair or some sort or a draw as is trying to take the pot down. If he has better then he'd probably opt for a check/raise on this type of board.

      I could call and see what he does on turn but to avoid tricky situations it's probably best to try and take the pot down with a raise?

      Hello Raknyo,

      We at the best could be playing here way ahead/behind and reevaluate the turn. Raising might be too much over-valuing our hand. Especially if he is tight there ain't that many worse hands which he calls.

      Best Regards.
