      mistake to even call here... the hand has some decent value for a flush or a straight.. but I am new to this SSS uusally I am playing BSS.

      flop seems fine,, i dont think i get much value from leading here... but on the turn should I put in some kind of gaybet to get value from a draw even though I am commited and my hand is kind of obvious?

      also he min open raised 3 times in total... first time he potted against one villan on A high flop, 2nd time he didnt cbet on QT8ss flop but potted the river when an ace fell and showed AK..

      i think u have ok pot odds to call this occassionally with sss. when u hit the turn
      your goal now is to get all your money into the pot and make him put his.

      checking the turn to feign weakness after your check/raised flop if hes agressive is a good line
      or making a min 4$ bet and a 5$ bet on the river to string him along.

      whats your player name on FTP? i play NL100 there also atm :)

      Hey KidPokersKid,

      welcome to the SSS side of the poker! :)

      Calling KTs preflop with 7:1 odds is OK, you just have to know you're playing for 2-pair or better then.

      On the flop, I would prefer to lead out with 4-5$ bet, unless you have some read villains are aggressive, because you don't want to play check/call when someone makes such a 2$ gay bet and if you check/raise you would usually have to check/push, because otherwise you give good odds to a draw and commit yourself.

      As played, I check turn with boat and hope he bets or shove river after feigning weakness on the turn and hope he hits something/doesn't give you credit.
