Hero folds
I have to fold this, right?  I think this player is bound to show up with trips, given his pot sized river bet.  He's played it coyly the whole way through and wants [mostly] stacks in on the river.  Ahhh... the joys of slow playing!

Final Pot: $21.00
SB wins $19.95
(Rake: $1.05)

  1. fold. don't go broke in an unraised pot.

    that being said - stop making unraised pots with KK!

    My version of "mixing it up" is raising occasionally with 34s (and Q9o, and 9To) to protect my raises with KK.

    I understand limping in the hope of raise behind you, but that didn't come, and now you can't feel bad about folding them in the face of aggression on a paired board.
