      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      MP: 50 BB
      CO: 125 BB
      BTN: 106 BB
      SB: 56.5 BB
      Hero (BB): 254 BB
      UTG: 100 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has K:diamond: T:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, SB raises to 3 BB, Hero calls 2 BB

      Flop: (6BB, 2 players) J:club: Q:spade: Q:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets 4 BB, SB raises to 10 BB, Hero?

      PF: I think it is OK to call here since I'm getting 2:1 pot odds.

      F: Since he checks, then I would take a stab at this flop with almost any hand. Since I hold an OESD, it is much easier for me to bet, however when I'm faced with a 2-bet, I'm unsure whether I my outs are clean. I know that if I complete my straight against AQ, Q9, JJ or 99 I would still be beat by a full-house.

      So my question is, since I know my opponent's range contains Q9+ and possibly JJ or 99, how do I properly discount my outs against my opponent's range?

      Hi Raknyo,

      I would bet/fold here. As you said the hands that help us can also help him (we can also count AA there as well) and some of our outs also put a flush on the board.

      All in all it's not a great spot to chase draws.
