      Hello Tosh5457,

      Well, we could have different type of hands for Calling. Obviously a lot of PPs/SCs/broadways are favorite ones for us. Although about Kx hands I'd rather pick something like KT+ than such a small one.

      Also even if I would Call it then I'd very likely raise the flop with our backdoor FD even. Plus of course very likely even enough of fold equity on such a board. While it's very likely that it didn't hit his range that often.

      Best regards.

      I think I'd do that if I knew he was TAG/LAG, but he's unknown.

      if he is unknown why are you making moves? rather fold wait for stats, and see against who you are dealing whit, than make moves based on information what you have... IMO K8 should be fold against unknown...
