K9o defend against button raise

$35 MTT, FT, ITM, bigger jumps for top 3 places, blinds 2500/5000/500
UTG 28K, UTG+1 50K, HJ 90K, CO 161K BTN 116K, SB 68K, Hero/BB 106K

Dealt to hero Kd9s
4 folds, BTN raises to 12500, fold, BB calls 7500
Flop Th7dTd
Check, check
Turn (Th7dTd) 3d
Check, BTN bets 15000

No strong reads on BTN. Preflop: defend, 3-bet/fold, or fold?
What do I do now? If I flat call, should I c/f blank rivers?

Re: K9o defend against button raise

I think I like 3bet/folding pre, although the flat is ok too due to your stack size at just over 20bb's, if you had between 25-30bbs I'd 3bet/fold for sure.

As played I think I'm folding the turn bet. There is a good chance that villain is FOS, but even if we hit a diamond it may not be good and/or we wont get enough chips because of board texture with 4 diamonds out.

Re: K9o defend against button raise

Easy defend pre don┤t know why we wanna 3bet/f this hand, and i will defend my most Kx, prob 3bet K2o or something.
I lean towards a lead ott (big sizing) and shove most rivers.
As played idk, i kinda wanna x/fold, but a x/r small (to like 35K) could be a good exploitation.

Re: K9o defend against button raise

Reasonable hand to x/r turn, but we're covered by the BTN and ICM could get dicey. Not sure why you don't want to bluff lead turn and follow through on most rivers.
