      Hi,


      KTo is a really crappy hand, it's mostly a 3-bet bluff with blockers. Don't do it unless BU is folding to 3-bets very often, or calling them very often just to play fit or fold poker on the flop, and when you get called, just remember most of the time your hand is still a bluff if you encounter resistance. Say you get a K98 flop, c-bet and get jammed on, chances are your TPGK is no good against a 16/15.

      As played just check/fold the flop against most 16/15, it hits his 3bet calling range quite well unless he's calling with a lot of broadways too, and you'll just get into more troubles by c-betting.


      Hope it helps.
