      I already posted this hand in the german forum. Denz came to the conclusion that I should have pushed the Flop because the board is not looking very scary and furthermore for protection.

      But is it really a good idea to push TP second best Kicker??? I don't know how many TPTK hands I lost when I pushed. Since then I am a little bit cautious with such hands.

      So whats your line here?

      i agree those spots are tough but i think in the end push flop seems to be a good line cause the board offters so many draws that you could easily be still ahead on the flop

      Ah, ok so on such drawheavy boards it is ok to push here for protection.

      Last time I had almost the same situation, but the board was of all different suits.

      I held AKs and the Board was K 10 4

      In this situation I raised, got reraised and I pushed All-in. I got called by K10 :( So in that Situation it was wrong to push I think. Not drawheavy board and a lot of action. But honestly I did not think about villain calling my preflop raise with K10. Would you have gone All-in here as well. Stacks were even at about 50 $.

      Fold Flop too weak?
      Which Hand minraises here? In my experience mostly Monsters(set / 2 pair) Would a Flushdraw really minraise here?
