      I had some weird reads on the raiser, but I think I should just fold here.

      notes on raiser:

      I agree that just folding to this big raise is the best way to play the hand. OK, you have a pair and OESD but with that board it's not likely that all of your outs are live. No need to chase here and end up in a ugly situation.

      If you think he's strong yea you should just call on the flop I guess, and fold on the turn to that bet, you dont have odds to call.

      Hi Kruppe,

      I don't like to raise KT on the SB, I'd just call and see a cheap flop.

      I'd fold on the flop. There's still the BB to act after you call and there's no way to be sure how many outs you actually have, and your implied odds for the straight are not good, that board would be too scary connected and you're OOP, it would be pretty difficult to stack villain.

      Turn is a clear fold.
