      What about betting preflop with K8 playing IP? Is that an option. I would bet here for sure. I think we bet here with better hand than villain is.

      Here we don't know what villain might have and we didn't overplayed our two pair so i think we played it nicely. As played on flop i think i would make pot bet.

      Hey Acetbfish,

      Preflop is fine. Your had is just about strong enough to raise IP vs a SB complete.

      Flop call is ok since this guy could presumably be doing it with just about anything.

      Turn raise for value is fine. When you get 3bet you are in a close spot. Folding is not out of the question.

      KK/44/77 56o/56s = 23 combos.
      K4s/K4o K7s/K7o 74o/74s 78s/78o = 27 combos

      If villain doesn't raise a hand like 74 or 78 you are actually not in great shape. Either way the spot is really close and you won't be making much money. Same applies to river call.
