Hi sapines1001

I think folding preflop would be my preferred method of action. K10o is a weak and vulnerable hand that doesn't play very well post flop, I'd rather make a speculative call with 89s or something than the K10.

As played, good fold. Calling the flop is fine and folding the turn is fine. There are lot of hands that have us beat and even if villain is semi bluffing with a hand like KQ/AQ he still has a lot of equity against us.

Cheers, Chris.

THIS

This is why big gapped,Broadway inclusive hands like K10 can get us in so much trouble...we hit a piece of the flop and really have no clue where we are in the hand. Look how this ended for you here...a 3 turns and you were still unsure enough of where you stood that you folded you hand here. There's no way you can say that you had any inking where you stood in the hand when you fold to a probable blanked card on the turn like that 2 was,no way.

Poker is hard enough without getting ourselves into difficult spots needlessly.
