Best Turn play w/ Set of Kings?

5/10 game, 9 handed , stack 1300

UTG +2 opens for 30, I 3b to 95 from CO w/ KcKs, heads up to flop (~800 effective)

Flop: 6hThAc (pot: ~200)

Vil checks I c bet 200, V calls

Turn: Kc (pot:600)

V checks again. Best play here?

Why are you potting flop with this hand?

Flop play is a way bigger issue than anything you decide to do on the turn.

Yeah flop seems odd. Now, bet $400 as we want to size to hopefully get stacks in on the river.

Re: Best Turn play w/ Set of Kings?

Why would we ever bet 400 ott? It leaves him with like $200 left OTR... He started the hand 800 effective.

Potting the flop is a big mistake. As played turn is an easy jam. I'd bet flop 1/3 pot or check.

My bad. Saw $1300 as the effective so turn bet can be a shove.

Re: Best Turn play w/ Set of Kings?

On flop we are representing AK or nothing ..so potting is good. We block AK and Kx..so no way for him to k ow we don't have AK.

On turn, AK is less likely because of card removal. So i like a check behind on turn.

As long as you know some poker logic, you can justify any move yo.

It's an important detail to know if the Kc is in our hand or peeling the turn. Can't be both.

3 bet Larger pre ($105-115 range) , on flop not necessary to pot that flop for obvious reasons... betting 1/3 to 1/2 pot would have been fine or checking back the flop dependent upon villians image (which is not defined in OP), as played Shove turn

Re: Best Turn play w/ Set of Kings?

Betting whole range on flop sounds reasonable, but if we weren't going to do that, this is a fine hand to drop. Potting is a bad sizing though.

Re: Best Turn play w/ Set of Kings?

Pre: 3-bet size is fine but I would probably go bigger. Something like $105.

Flop: You shouldn't be betting this flop. Checking back is superior. Would probably balance this play with most of my wheel aces.

Turn: As played, it's just a jam.
