      Hi,

      preflop: Fine as long as you know that your hand can be dominated by better J or K and you are comfortable playing it OOP.

      flop: it's fine as long as you have a plan on a 3bet bet from villain.

      Turn: I'd bet 2.5$ and shove the rest of my money in after he raise to get value from Kx and protect against the double FD.

      As played: The BDFD is unlikely , and he isn't folding Kx now, so c/rai for max value.

      Hi,

      Thank you for the reply Maya, on flop I raised, because I thought that he will c-bet even if he doesn't have anything, and I knew that I am dominated if he calls or if he raises, in that case I would have folded it on flop...But I was lucky and have two pair on turn, but I dont know why I did not push on river, maybe I was a little worried...

      Hi,


      I wouldn't raise the flop.

      As opposed to the ATs hand, your opponent seems to be a tag. He's open raised every hand he's played so far, and he's played a reasonable amount of them. So you when he raises from MP, c-bets such a flop and you raise, he will likely

      - 3bet/call sets or big draws.

      - fold all his air hands.

      - stick around and call with TP2K+, maybe maybe with KT, or even 3bet them if he thinks you're on a draw.


      Since you'll have to fold to a raise and you'll rarely get called by worse hands, i'd much prefer just calling the flop, probably calling any turn UI, and reevaluate on the river depending on his bet sizing and whether or not the draws missed.


      Hope it helps.
