      Hero (UTG+2): $2 (100 bb)
      MP1: $2.16 (108 bb)
      MP2: $1.12 (56 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with K K
      Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.24, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.16

      Flop: ($0.51) J T A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.25, MP3 raises to $0.75, Hero folds

      Was I right in folding KK on this flop? I thought he would have a higher pocket pair or has made a set. I thought of AK but then wasn't sure if I had the right odds to call his bet.

      Results:
      $1.01 pot ($0.06 rake)
      Final Board: J T A
      MP3 mucked and won $0.95 ($0.46 net)
      Hero mucked K K and lost (-$0.49 net)

      Hi,

      I had KK...just entered the wrong hand in the question field.

      I wasn't sure if 4 betting pre flop would be better...as the villain in this case, seemed like a very tight player so once he 3 bets..i thought i would be better if I just call and see the flop then decide.

      I think flatting the 3b is fine given starting positions and villain's tightness.

      I dont like the flop lead. It achieves nothing. Ill checkcall once and fold turn.
