      I think I played this hand wrong in a few ways. No preflop raise, no raise on the flop - and I was stuck with a difficult decision to call on the turn, opponent was pretty much committed. Comments most welcome.

      I would have thrown my hand away on the flop since you only have a gutshot straight, backdoor flush and villain bet pot. On the turn I think you should either check/raise all in to get lots of fold equity and you have plenty of outs, or just fold. Your not getting the right odds to just call the turn since even if you hit your implied odds are small because its pretty obvious that your on a draw after c/c the flop and turn.

      And the key stat here is ATS (attempt to steal), I think it is ORL on elephant, or something like that... Knowing his preflop range you could re-raise instead of just calling, I find calling too passive, and with a re-raise you get more info... If he 4bets you, you obviously have to fold, if he calls well, then you can cbet on the flop.

      Fold flop. You could 3bet pf but you don't have enough hand to back the stats up. When called and hit you also might be second best when you get action. So most of the time a call pf against an unknown opponent is fine.

      I like to defend with KQ by 3-betting pf.
      I´d probably call on the flop, simply because CO could contibet with worse hands I my K high might be good. If I hit my K, Q or straight I would play for stacks.
