      this is nasty because i did not know what to do, i felt i can't fold on the turn and was dumb .. dunno exactly what to do here, i have only 6 hands with him and this zoom format is very new to me.

      Hi..
      Im not 3betting KJ preflop unless im certain that villain is extremely loose and calls 3bets with many weak hands.

      As played i dont think u can ever fold with such good pot odds being offered to u. U need to call 1.88 more to win 9.48.

      Thanks.

      so then you just call and play the hand oop ? if you just call you will almost always face a cbet ..and then ?

      Then u sometimes call flop and sometimes raise. U can bluff raise boards with one diamond or maybe just checkraise w two over cards.

      On drier board texture u can also call a flop bet with the intention of bluffing the river if turn is checked. Itdoesnt mean that you have to fold if u dont hit a pair.
