      I also have a question about this hand for the judges:

      What about 3betting it IP pre? Opponents seem rather passive and kinda loose...

      I'd prefer checking behind on the flop, by the look of their stats not many of these guys would fold Kx

      on the turn definitely take a free card, he's shown he's got a K and i don't think he'll fold it

      It is bad play on his part but thats the reason its a bad push

      Please remove results.

      Otherwise preflop is totally fine, but it could be an option to 3bet there also. But if ya being more passive then just flatting and playing postflop is also totally fine.

      While you played postflop so passively why do you get aggresive on flop? Ye sure you could CBet on flop but not against so many opponents. I would prefer just to check, otherwise as played I am definitely checking behind on turn.
