      Overview:

      Not sure about this one. After he called me on the flop I assumed he had a draw (particularly considering his WTS stat). If he had a made hand there was nothing much I could do in any case. So I didn't really consider the K to be that threatening - It seemed unlikley that I would have been called preflop with KT for instance. KJ possibly, but then he wouldnt have had the odds to call my flop bet. Plus I had plenty of fold equity from my two previous bets.

      Good decision? Overthinking? Post size bet on the flop?

      I go broke here as well. If he called your flop bet with AK, he just made a bad call, so be it. But other than that, K on the turn doesn't complete any draw and shouldn't improve his hand, therefore I push here. Besides he looks like a calling station, so it's a push for value.

      Hello John,

      You can bet some more on the Flop and I sometimes do that because of the coordinated board but the result is the same on the Turn: All-In :) So I recommend betting more like $2 on the Flop

      Pushing on the Flop is overbetting and high variance so I would not recommend that

      Best regards,
      Gerv
