      I'm raising to $3 preflop. Flop is fine.

      Without reads c/f the turn, he can't have a Tx that you beat and nobody will fold Kx to just a turn bet. If you knew he was a huge calling station it might be fine to bet again for value against worse pairs and redraws, but against an unknown it's taking it too far imo.

      As played fold to the turn minraise, it's a flush the vast majority of the time on that board, you have no business calling whatsoever even if it's cheap. River is a fold for the same reasons.

      Hope it helps.

      yes checking the turn seems most appropriate ty

      oh and yes I can see why I should raise more it was just at the time I was bored and just wanted a caller :/

      typical karma.
