      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is UTG with K :heart: A :diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, SB raises to $0.20, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.42) Q :club: K :club: 3 :heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.28, Hero raises to $0.86, SB raises to $1.80, Hero calls $0.94

      I knew that I'm behind here. I just left myself too good odds.

      Raise smaller the flop and fold on a shove? We only beat AQ here, which is not likely given the villain. QQ+ are all crush us on this flop, and we split with occasional AK (and we might also loose if the ace is of clubs)

      Hi,

      True. If I'm not stacking off, it's not for value. Trying to bluff him of sth like AA is stupid as well. And I don't really think that our hand can improve on the turn, if we are behind. So should I just call this bet and look at his bet on the turn? If he has JJ or AQ, he won't bet again, at least not big, so we can fold the turn to a big bet.

      i'd never call that reraise on the turn, what do u think he has at this point? and actually depending on his stats i would of folded or 4bet preflop!

      Just call and probably keep calling on most runouts unless something like a J of clubs come out. He an still have bluffs for sure but raising isolates u vs better

      I didn't play the turn :) I stacked on the flop, but as I said, I was pretty sure that I'm behind, and it was a bad play of mine.

      Preflop he's quite tight, so I doubt that he's calling our 4bet with much worse. As I have position on him, flatting seems okay.
