      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: Why exactly are we calling preflop? That should be your main question.

      What do you do if you flop a K or J? Do you go broke?

      Simply 3-bet/fold here preflop and if he is really aggro and 4-bets a lot we expend our value range and reduce our bluff range.

      I wouldnt go broke even if I hit K or J.
      if I get 2 pair or flush draw,i would go broke,

      Perfect,

      How often do you get 2p+ or flushdraw?

      We get 28% pot odds.

      PS: I'd still just fold preflop.

      It should be 2p+ but it's usually 5% (for 2p, trips, quads, flush, straight, etc)

      For flush draw it's roughly 10% of the time (same for most OESDs).

      So in your case you are hoping to flop something 15% of the time yet you get 28% pot odds. So you definitely need some implied odds. The bigger problem is that when you flop a draw (66% of the time) you don't actually have a made hand so more money has to go in there (sometimes with FE).

      So overall you don't have that great of a spot.
