      Hero (BB): $4.46 (223 bb)
      UTG: $1.85 (92.5 bb)
      MP: $0.20 (10 bb)
      CO: $0.32 (16 bb)
      BTN: $3.71 (185.5 bb) 53/9/1.1/8.0 (vpip/pfr/af/3bet%)
      SB: $0.46 (23 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K A
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.20 and is all-in, CO folds, BTN calls $0.20, SB folds, Hero calls $0.18

      Flop: ($0.61) K 5 J (3 players, 1 is all-in)
      Hero bets $0.61, BTN calls $0.61

      Turn: ($1.83) 6 (3 players, 1 is all-in)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($1.83) 7 (3 players, 1 is all-in)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      MP is a guy that shoves his 10bbs every hand(nice to have such a player in your table).I've got problem playing this hand deep stack.I flopped top pair so what??Do I commit and try to get all my money in??

      BTN seems to be a whale. Thus, I definitely bet on the turn. You get paid by worse Kx, Jx, gut shots and flush draws, even third pairs. You can´t give him a freecard when he´d be happy to pay for it.

      You don´t have to fear to commit yourself against such a fish. Your TP is waaaaay ahead of his weak calling range.

      Hello helliaspapas,

      Preflop: Rather squeeze it for value.

      As played
      Postflop: Bet the turn as well for value + protection. :)

      Best Regards.
