      -----

      If he is on a tight range, I have 55.63% equity on the flop as he will likely cbet his entire range on this flop.

      Board: AsKd9h
      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 55.63% 55.03% 0.60% { KsTc }
      MP3 44.37% 43.77% 0.60% { 22+, A2s+, KTs+, QTs+, JTs, T9s, 98s, 87s, 76s, 65s, 54s, ATo+ }

      The turn is pretty much a blank, but I folded as I didn't really know how to play this hand.

      My thought process:
      I'm pretty sure that my flop call was correct due to the reason that CO is likely cbetting his entire range on this flop and I am ahead (vs 16.74% range).

      I cannot call a turn bet without a read that he could 2nd barrel as a bluff on a blank or a stat that he bets turns often. Since he is not giving up, it is likely that he has an ace or a better made hand.

      QUESTIONS:
      1. Is my thought process correct?
      2. Was it a good call on the flop?
      3. Was it a good fold on the turn?
      4. Are there any other reasons, besides the ones I mentioned, that I could use to call on the turn?

      Thanks in advance for the help.

      Hello,

      Preflop I prefer folding KTo.

      As played, postflop is fine. Your though process is good here, but I don't agree with one thing - if he has a high cbet%, that doesn't necessarily mean that he is going to double barrel as a bluff on this board, so I would always fold here unless we see him double barrel here as a bluff.

      Best,
      Plamen
