      SB shows three of a kind, tens(Tc Ts).
      Hero shows a pair of kings(Kh Kd).

      SB wins with three of a kind, tens(Tc Ts).

      My senses were telling he had a sat, but I just couldn't throw it away. Called flop with intention raising on the turn and getting it in. Or should I just call down if he leads with the bets?

      Hi,


      I'd just raise the flop barring a read that he'll continue to bluff/valuebet worse on the turn. Plus i hate unknowns donkbetting into me blinds vs late position ;)

      Your plan is fine too but honestly it looks even stronger to raise on the turn, so you're less likely to get his whole stack in against a worse hand.

      As played on the river really he pretty much always has T9/TT. He'd have bet himself or check/raised the turn with a better hand than yours, and it makes no sense for him to take that line even with stuff like QQ unless he puts you on a float/9x on the turn. Maybe he can play some diamond redraw like that on the turn but not everybody will come out bluffing like that on the river when they whiff.


      Hope it helps.
