KQs Flops Huge, Board Gets Ugly

Villain is unknown to me, I’m pretty sure I made the right fold here. I guess he could bluff a busted flush draw, but even a lot of busted flush draw combos hit the four card straight. KJ got there, if he called the flop with middle pair he tripped up on the turn. AJ also makes a lot of sense flopping a double gutter.

  • I’d play this hand exactly the same except for the flop and turn bet sizes which I would make bigger.
