      I probably should have folded but thought I may have been priced in, I then hit the flop with TP and again the half pot bet I felt that I couldn't fold :f_biggrin:

      Hi Matt,

      We are definitely not priced in. Look at the pot odds you are getting and compare to what you are looking to hit. Our hand (the K) is easily dominated by better Kx especially deeper (as shown here).

      So I would be happy to either 4-bet bluff if villain has been aggressive or just simply hit the fold button.

      As played calling one street is fine but I would fold to any further action.
