      BB checks, Hero bets $1.50, CO calls $1.50, BB calls $1.50

      TURN ($6.85) K:diamond: 5:diamond: Q:club: A:heart:

      BB checks, Hero bets $4.20, CO folds, BB raises to $13.20, Hero folds

      BB wins $14.56

      BB is unknown, 14/7 in 15 hands.

      On the flop I think it's close, but I decided to bet for value vs draws, because here could be so many of them. Turning top two and now I beat Kx and once again bet for value, but get an unexpected raise.

      Since he's unknown, I do not have any info at all. But since my perceived range is really really strong, I do not expect him to bluff or raise worse hands for value. + We are deep, so I most likely would have faced a big bet on the river.

      Standard fold?

      Thanks. :heart:

      Dont bet the flop. And if you bet the flop and the board bricks out u must be prepared to call and bluffcatch vs busted draws. Anyway u block straight draws and flush draws with your ace of diamond.

      Turn really depends on whether he is capable of overplaying kq but i think its probay fine to bet fold here.
