Turn spot €170 live Megastack

Live tournament with a pretty nitty table.Folds to me in the cutoff so I 2.5x with Kd7d expecting to pick up the blinds quite a bit (pre ante).Nitty guy flats on Btn and BB(station) comes along. I felt more incentivised to raise here as the BB seemed like a fishy calling station so playing pots with him seemed like a good idea.

Flop- Kh5s2s
BB checks I bet about 55 percent pot and get called by Btn and BB.I am quite worried about the Btn call as he has a lot of KQs/KJs/K10s but I amnt too worried about the BB call as he's calling all his pairs and all his draws.

Turn-9h
BB leads out for about 70percent pot. As fishy as the BB was he hadn't shown up with many bluffs so far so
I decided to fold here with the Btn to act behind me.If I was heads up vs the Bb I prob flat here as he can obviously have a lot of draws but with the Btn to act behind me and tonnes of bad river cards for me I folded.

I'm interested to see how other people would play this hand. All comments appreciated

I like checking this flop, as i think you gather more info about button´s range this way depending on wether he bets or checks and also to pot control trying to not blow the pot with a marginaL holding.
Turn i think I sigh fold, doubt he chooses to bluff with a line like this one and betting large OTT.

Re: Turn spot €170 live Megastack

Pretty easy fold on the turn - glad you were able to find it.

BB's sudden coming-to-life on the turn is consistent with 22, 55, K9 or even 95. Bear in mind that fish don't just lose money by playing loose passive when they are behind. They lose money by betting too fast when they do have a hand, making it easy for wide-awake players to exit with minimal losses.

If BB is capable of making an esoteric play with turn aggression on a draw/bluff, he's not a calling station and he's not an aquarium-grade fish. He might still be a exploitable player, but you'd have quite a different read on what the holes in his game might be.

Plus, as you say, there's plenty of reason to assume that Button might be ahead of you, too.

Going back to the very beginning, you've got borderline value to be gunning for the blinds pre-flop from the CO, but it was probably worth a try, given your reads on who's left to play.

Checking the flop would have been more likely to get you some action/insight from opponents who couldn't beat TP on a relatively dry board. But if either Villain leads the flop and then the turn, too, that puts you in a trickier situation than where you ended up.

Fold the turn

An argument both ways could be made on the cbet

Just a small note, I like to open a bit bigger their with K7
