      i'll bet/fold on the turn ~$1.5
      reasons:
      - i think hero still have the best hand on the turn
      - it's a good spot for villain to bluff
      - villain seems quite aggressive

      If we check the turn i would ck.fold on this board. Our draw can backfire on us and villain is aggressive so we can't really assume we get a free showdown (especially after we appear so weak).

      So instead of ck/folding I don't mind to bet/fold and get villain to fold his floats (which we beat however he can bluff us with them if we check) and some other equity hands. And if he calls we still have some outs with our Kh.

      maybe also another thing to say is that it is not necessarily to enter the hand from UTG with KJ. Those marginal hands are hard to play and there is still many players to act. We will almost always be OOP. I think just by folding KJ from UTG we avoid many problems postflop.

      If we also take a look at Pokerstrategy charts, how to open raise on SH tables, KJ hand is excluded in Normal open raise range.

      I do like that....if i am inactive on the table then i balance somehow with hands like KJ or suited connectors from UTG..if i am to active then i exclude KJ from open raising from UTG etc.

      yeah, was thinking about that aswell.
      Maybe the whole problem started preflop by playing the hand :P
