Flop comments welcome as well. On the turn I'm not sure if the check raise is better than just calling and leading out on a good river card. It doesn't look my implied odds are that good if I do call and catch my river card.

I basically would never do this, but okay I'm sure its not terrible.

Is it just me or if you are going to c'r why not do it on the flop and push any turn.

Or is the c'r on the turn to represent an even stronger hand than the one you have? If that is the case, would you check-call with a set on this flop with this many people drawing against it?

I think that this is a much safer play on the turn. On the flop I have to overbet if I want to get all of my chips in. By the turn I can be almost certain that UTG+1 is weak or a complete donk and the K is a nice scare card to pull this off on. I was still in the dark about UTG though.

Iím only a $16/$27 donk but this would get me to fold. I would lay down my weak K or two pair to an obviously superior hand.

It's fine as long as your opponents aren't donks that call with any piece of this board. The nightmare is of course if one of them has K/images/graemlins/heart.gif x/images/graemlins/heart.gif, but you can't really be afraid of that.
