      Another overplay?
      Damn I'm finding a lot of overplayed stuff in last week sessions.
      I guess I grew tired of getting void boards or getting big points on drawy boards.
      My first official tilt?

      Hi,

      Yeah this is a tough spot and it really depends on the opponent. If he is somewhat spazzy then this is for sure a call. If he is instead more on the passive side I would lean towards a fold. He is not bluffing very often, and we're toast by his value range. Fold is fine.

      What to do on blank turn? Bet I suppose?

      Check/call flop a valid line? Too drawy?

      No if he calls and turn is a blank I would most likely check/evaluate (probably fold). There is not much sense in betting, yes we can get value from some draws I guess, but he also has a lot of Kx in his range, so don't think the draws are enough to make up for that.

      If we can't bet twice for value then why not just play check/Call on the flop?

      How does that change things? If we check/call flop we still have to check/fold the turn, only that now we've given him a chance to see a free card with his draws.
