      How to play here? I thought I gave improper implied odds to call with my raise preflop. Because of that, I put him on a flush draw. Is this a bad way to stack off? No stats on here but he was deep stacked (400bb)

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K, K.
      MP2 raises to $0.13, Hero raises to $0.46, 3 folds, MP2 calls $0.33.

      Flop: ($0.99) 5, 3, T (3 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.80, MP2 raises to $2.20, Hero raises to $4.85, MP2 calls $3.45.

      Turn: ($12.29) 9 (3 players)

      River: ($12.29) 4 (3 players)

      Final Pot: $12.29.
      Results follow:

      MP2 shows three of a kind, tens(T T).
      Hero shows a pair of kings(K K).

      MP2 wins with three of a kind, tens(T T).

      Being deepstacked alone doesn't tell you much, except he's more likely to be either a decent player running good or a total lunatic with a little angel on his shoulder.

      I would probably bet smaller on the flop, it's a 3bet pot and getting the money in in 3 streets is gonna be easy, no need to scare away the weaker hands that might call us.

      As played when he raises your strong c-bet it sucks somewhat, but since QQ-JJ are just as likely has TT and he's not that likely that have called with 55/33 preflop and he'll have some Tx sometimes if he's aggro, felting KK in that spot against an unknown is almost mandatory. NH overall.

      Hope it helps.
