      should i have folded to the re raise on the flop or bet the turn? does the re-raise signify a stronger hand?

      Flop:
      The re-raise on dry boards almost always signify at least TPTK so fold.
      Turn:
      He shows more strength so it is once more a fold.

      Hi,


      I'm just pitching the flop it's not worth it, it's really hard for him to even have any kind of draw on that board and you opened from UTG, unless he's suicidal he's not bluff-raising the K-high board. I've played a bit of rush poker recently and frankly it just looks like everybody is quite happy just folding all day long until they pick up something, even his preflop calling range is very tight if he's a reg so without reads i'm not planning on making big calldowns ever.

      As played on the turn it really looks like he's putting you on the installment plan with his small bet, he just flopped a set and that's it :p


      Hope it helps.
