      Hero (BTN): $13.69 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2,0, Hands: 104846

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BTN with K :diamond: A :diamond:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.15, Hero raises to $0.50, 2 folds, CO calls $0.35

      Flop: ($1.07) T :diamond: 7 :spade: A :heart: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $0.80, CO calls $0.80

      Turn: ($2.67) 4 :spade: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $1.74, CO raises to $3.60, Hero folds [COLOR=deeppink]All showdowned raises were close to nuts from him, so easy fold.
      Even without that read, ch.c flop, ch.r turn beats 1pair generally.[/COLOR]
      Even though I created a big pot before I folded, I think there is no room to slowplay here. I have TPTK withSPR of 6, which should be enough to go broke under normal circumstances, but I think minimzing losses is more important in this case after I 2ndbarrel.

      Hey Imimba1,

      Preflop is fine.

      I'd probably bet smaller on flop and turn just given the effective stack sizes.

      Normally an SPR of 6 is a little high for TPTK anyway. SPR of 4 is usually comfortable stack off, so there is room to get away from this hand.

      In terms of folding vs turn raise it's tough because you've already crossed the commitment threshold and theoretically should not be folding. I think this is a problem caused by bet sizes on earlier streets however, and turn fold is probably ok. He doesn't need AQ/AJ very much in order for this to be a clear call though.
