      First thing I would do is make a note for limping KK - I would check the turn after his raise on the flop and call/fold his turn bet. DUNNO with out some player info :( unlucky tough spot.

      Hi karel,
      I see you're a bronze member and playing NL50 - in case you're playing on a non-tracked site/account, I suggest you have a look at our bonus offers, visible on the home page - this way, you'll be able to post your hands in the correct forum ;) And access articles, videos and coachings.
      Anyway, concerning the hand: Against a mid-stack I'm getting it in on this board with TPTK; the question is how to do it best. Considering his range is basically 6x, Qx (where x = K through 9, maybe), occasional smaller pairs, and bluffs - so you want to give him a chance to bluff again, especially since you won't have much trouble getting value from the hands you beat should he check behind. So basically, check/call or check/raise if he bets real small (if he bets very small, you can easily assume he won't bluff big on the river, so you might as well just put his stack in directly on the turn)

      Hope it helps and good luck at the tables,
