      Hello,

      sorry for having posted similar hands like this before, but I still don't know how to maximize my value. Do I just call his bet and raise his turnbet while hoping for the flush to miss, or do I raise the flop donk?

      Hi.

      I think flop is a pretty clear call with top set. When you have 2 Kings yourself, it's really hard for villain to have a king. So raising only allows you to extract more money from his draws. I think it's much better to slowplay and let him continue bluffing (or bet when he checks).

      This is closer to a raise. Firstly QQ on this board is more vulnerable than KK on the other board. I guess the 1st board had slightly more straight draws but still you don't really want to see a King or Ace on the Turn.

      It's certainly close, if villain had bet larger I wouldn't mind calling so much, and if villain bets like 4 or less I would definitely raise.

      This is one of those spots where he bets an "in-between" size which makes both decisions fairly close IMO. I don't mind either play. But with KK and AA I would definitely call, and with TT I would definitely raise.

      Thanks.
