      Yes, why not? 53 and AK are unlikely in Villain range. So only 22/44/66 beat us.
      By the way, how much will you raise? I have trouble to determine how much it in similar situations.

      This is my thinking process (I assumed we are ahead and want to extract max value)

      1. If I think Villain bluff, I minraise.
      2. If I think Villain has pocket pair or dominated Kx, I'll bet 2/3 pot.

      How do you think?

      Hello koosMaras,

      Do you think he is capable of calling with worse there? I'd say it's pretty thin value. :) So even if I would raise it here then I'd keep it pretty smallish a bit more than min-raise.

      Best regards.

      At first, I thought there are worse Kx combos that can call and planned to minraise or raise little bit more. But then start questioning my plan and decided just to call.

      @patszerdonk I'm usually calling if I think they're bluffing. I don't see much sense to raise a bluff.
