This flop is not terrible.
seems like you think that you played it well and made a good fold coz you would have gone broke with that river.
Pot 3 betting with these effective stacks means you should be going with the hand most on most flops. So you did, thus building a huge pot with kessler cold calling from sb or w/e, and gave up when checked to you?????
flat pre or 3 bet much smaller is far more optimal and would generally make easier decsions post and busting less often in these spots.
As it happened kessler made a lol cold call and you gotta make a strong bet on the flop/get it in and hope you get at least 1 fold.
sounds like kessler would fit right in with the o8 games on stars
