      BTN ($56.95)

      Dealt to Hero K:diamond: A:club:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.75, Hero raises to $2.80, fold, BTN calls $2.05

      FLOP ($5.85) 2:spade: 3:diamond: T:heart:

      Hero bets $2.90, BTN calls $2.90

      TURN ($11.65) 2:spade: 3:diamond: T:heart: 4:heart:

      Hero checks, BTN bets $5.56, Hero folds

      BTN wins $11.13

      50/50 8h

      Flop - backdoor str draw + overs. Not sure if that is enough. I fold workse hands and many PPs are not folding.

      If I chekc flop - its check/fold but with AK it feels weak. He can bet air here like KQ.

      in a 3 bet pot on this flop he's better than you most of the time, since it's zoom, I would put him on JJ/QQ or even set of 10's I think check fold would be the best play here.

      Hey SPeedFANat1c,

      Preflop is fine.

      Vs unknown on flop would play the same way but barrel decent cards. 4 improves your equity but doesn't help out much in fold-equity department.

      With stats we can be more specific. For example vs a guy with high Ft3bet you can just check/fold flop and not feel bad about it.

      Vs a guy with extremely high bet-vs-missed-cbet and lower Ft3bet there is also the underutilised check-call flop option since you have a pretty decent bluffcatcher.

      SOmetime it happend that its high f3bet- 70 %. BUt 4bet is low, whic meash he can have 25% callling range. SO then I would still feel bad about check folding.
