      Check and pot size raise is mega powerful, but I just couldn't fold my TPTK, because of possible semibluffed FD - and I called it. Turn seems to be a total blank, my opponents quickly bet pot again - it looked like "fold it man, I want to bluff you". I think he would bet less with a set, he could also hold a weaker King {KQ, KJ, KT}, so I pushed it.

      Try not to spoil the result in the title next time :D

      Hard to say without having played with him, if you think he plays worse Kx and flushdraws that way but will fold Kx to a 3bet then calling the flop raise is fine, but you can't fold on a blank turn after that ever.

      Personally, unless i had seen him make such huge bets with TPGK and/or draws before, his 1.4 AF would probably have scared me away, resulting in a "whatever, take it" fold.

      Hope it helps.
