      Hey RiverDiver,

      The K on the turn is problem card. Even if you are not beat it makes it harder to extract value from villains range because worse pairs don't like it. It's not good if villain folds Tx but continues only with Kx.

      There are two solutions to this problem. Either bet small on the turn, like 1/3rd pot and play bet/fold. Or turn your hand into a bluff-catcher and play check-call.

      River call is probably ok with the price you get, but it's unlikely you are good of course.
