      There is definitely still value in a bet against other top pairs, i don't think any of them would fold Kx to a half pot turn bet, if they somehow peeled with a pocket pair with a diamond they'll likely call again as well.

      When BU shoves on a flushing turn however I think you're beat pretty much all the time, unless he happens to have AdKx in which case he's freerolling you anyway. CO in-between could also have you beat sometimes tho most often he won't. All in all it's not worth continuing when two passive players show such interest. NH.

      Hope it helps.
