      folding turn is correct, but you should already checkfold the flop because you do not have a strong kicker!


      btw, would you also have posted this hand if the river hadnt been a 5? :D

      Ingol - in this spot with with TPNK you are correct. But what about K5 in this spot on the Flop. Board is very drawy and I wouldn't believe I am in front here, especially against so many opponents. People limping low PP's or calling with no cards for value perhaps, A5 is different as you have a draw too but I don't like this spot with TPGK

      good thoughts

      i wouldnt feel too comfortable with K5, too.....however , this is a beginners hand, and first of all they should learn the basics :)

      The problem is that some pocket pairs like 66 or 77 beat you

      a bit advanced: i think with K5 you can play bet/fold
