      Hi.

      I think this theorem applies even more when board further coordinates. I'm not sure if they would overplay QT and KT here (but if they do they have you crushed). I also think they can easily have J9 or AJ a lot of the time. And of course KQ is a good part of their ranges.

      So this is a really standard bet/fold. Question is whether we should even bet the Turn. I think it's close, and since there's a huge fish in the pot I don't mind it too much. He could have KJ K9 K8, QJ JT AT AQ etc which may call the turn again with pairs + gutshot.

      Thanks.
