      Hey,

      That flop hits his preflop flat 3bet range so hard I would say your hand is way to weak to get the money in. He either has pair + FD with huge equity or you are crushed when he raises. Why did you chose to pot it on the flop? Would like to hear more about that in other to continue with a gameplan or suggest a different one.

      Try to think a bit more than just protecting. I dislike the term because 90% of the time it's an excuse to bet not a reason. You have to consider if your hand is actually worth protecting or in other words, does it actually get value in case it gets called. Protection basically refers to not giving your opponent the right odds with his range (more importantly his draws) but once his range is so much stronger you cannot protect when you are behind his range, you just own yourself.

      I would personally consider check/calling flop since I think others have an even bigger obsession with protection and will bet any Kx although it's not vulnerable on this flop. Furthermore, people bet their draws so they pay you somehow anyway plus you avoid getting it in vs a strong range like you did here.

      Hmmm didn't tought about that line -- check/calling but sounds very good. Yeah I bet pot to protect my hand from draws and get more value paying me with his draws . Don't know why I called that just gave him the wrong range . TY
