BTN: $199
SB: $210
Hero (BB): $342.10

UTG: $78.40
UTG+1: $75.50
MP1: $121
MP2: $283.80
CO: $209.80

Pre-Flop: K A dealt to Hero (BB)
6 folds, SB raises to $8, Hero raises to $24, SB calls $16

Pretty standard three-bet when TAG small blind raises your big blind.

Flop: ($48) T A 2 (2 Players)
SB checks, Hero bets $38, SB calls $38

I flop TPTK, only behind AA, TT, 22 and AT and ahead of AQ/AJ.

Turn: ($124) 9 (2 Players)
SB checks, Hero bet/folds or bet/calls?

He called the flop out of position, so he has a solid hand. Checking behind is bad, two flush draws out there and I don’t want to give a free card to AQ, AJ. Am I willing to felt this hand the way it was played, or should I bet an amount on the turn that will allow me to fold comfortably if he c/r’s me.
