      No stats, no info. Just a big loss. Should I have been more suspicious after the turn call? Was this a river fold? I keep getting pounded by sets. At what point do you lay down TPTK?

      Hi,

      Make it 4BB pf. This way we isolate ourselves against less opponents and build the pot with a hand that we want to get value with.

      postflop I'd bet a bit more on the turn (1.6$) to protect and get more value from Kx and FD hands.
      Your play is fine tho I rather b/f the river insted of c/c to get value from Kx hands which will check behind.

      Don't take it too hard, coolers happen. It's a standard line with TPTK against unknown.
