nicoiko ...

We have the best possible hand at this time.
What do we do here ?
3-bet (in order to make grow the pot but with a risk he's got something like KJ or KQ and hit his card on the river) or just call and wait until the river (in order to be sure to have the nuts but after losing one more bet on the turn)?

I obviously did after I put him on either K9 or K-less possibly QJ (even if i think he will have capped on the flop with the straight) or KJ (which made only 3 J to be rivered).

AA, AK, 99 and even KQ would have been re raised preflop I guess if I refer on how loose he was.

So he didn't capped the turn.:(
But i still have a call to my bet on the river which was a blank. :)
He told me after the hand he had KJ :cool:
Here is the rest of the hand.

*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot $253.00 | Rake $3.00
Board: [9s Td Kd Kh 7s]
maxfree won ($0.00), mucks
TheGobbyFr won ($0.00), mucks
chinchale won ($0.00), mucks
SuperSami won ($0.00), mucks
nicoiko won ($253.00), showed [Ks Th]

I was pretty satisfied with the read i made and the way i succeed in maximizing the profit.

I've been always annoyed with hitting 2 pairs on the flop especially if the board is connected (flush draw or straight one).
I almost never win those : whatever I bet to protect or just try to contain the value of the pot, they always hit their draws on the river.
This time I was happy to see a K on the turn :)
