      Final Pot: $47.75.



      I put him on KK,AA (and possibly AK). And I didn't want to scare him on the flop if he had KK, also no protection was needed if he had kings. So I slowplayed. Then a K of heart came on the Turn and that scared me.

      Any other card on the turn, that was not a heart or K and I would have been all in.


      How should I have played this hand?

      I would c/r flop to 30$ and shove any turn card
      AK would not fold there, KK would not barrel turn, so if he has QQ then it is just cooler :) and he can easily put you on flushdraw
      I think you should still get all-in on the turn, since he´d also shove there AK, AQ
      And flush is not so likely
