      your right, this was horribly played imo...

      the preflop raise is ok, as well as the call on the flop (even though you could also reraise right here to challenge draws and eventually fold if you get raised again). I would then just call the turn for pot control and fold to another big bet on the river. The reasoning for this being as follows: BB could be betting this kind of scary flop with air or with a random middle pair (therefore call flop), he might have hit the king on the turn as well and even if he has the flush already we can hit the full house and probably win his entire stack (therefore call turn), fold to another big bet since he wouldnt make that bet after two cold calls without the flush.

      Getting all-in with top two isn´t always bad, but board is too drawy that I also like call on the turn and I would probably call him down if he bets river.
