      Final Pot: $11.05.

      Villain-unknown.Should I raise turn?On the river the fold looks weak at first glance but I dont think I beat anything from his value range but KQ(and it would be a strange line to play it like that.)Although he could sometimes have there total air I think that more often his value range has me crushed.His bet on the river could be considered as a block bet with a weak hand with showdown value but it rather seems like a strong hand that wants to get called.

      I think turn call is fine
      You have there hand that has showdown value at the same time you don´t want to raise and then get all-in with your equity
      River shoudl be easy call, since he would valuebet worse hands- especially Kx and he can have there a lot of missed flushdraws
