      I'm definately not calling PF unless the BB is a big fish. KTs is a dominted hand and call oop aggainst two solid vilains doesn't seems good. You are going to win some small pots and lose the mid/big ones.

      Hey,

      Pre is close and would definitely fold vs 3bb open. vs 2.5x I am tempted to call.

      Postflop depends a bit if you want to check/raise, check/call or lead. I often lead, sometimes check/call, rarely check/raise. They can all be +EV imo but depends how you construct your range that includes KTs in it. If you check/raise, barreling here is fine, he should fold all flopped overpairs and possibly sets as well.

      I suppose constructing a check/raising range would be done by having mostly hands that are good to check/raise for value in your range and a few semi bluffs.

      So in this situation I'd want all the PP's and maybe a few nutish flushdraws. I think here I can credibly rep a pretty strong range of something like 66-33,AJs-ATs,KJs-KTs. I see here I don't want to go too overboard with the flush draws.

      What are you looking for when constructing your check/calling or donking range? Assuming you are doing it into regish guys and there is not fish. And you have no reads on whether they are likely to bet a flop in position.

      When you check/raise I kinda feel prefer not with the nutdraws unless you can stack off. They are too good to turn into a bluff imo.

      Check/call range would be hands I can't raise for value that can go to showdown often and some nut draws because of extra over card outs and implied odds vs weaker draws. Texture and how it interacts with my preflop range and my opponent's range also matters not just my hand.
