      Is it worth putting in a small raise here? I figured if he has a king I want to get his full stack, which means I need to bloat the pot a little. Also I can represent having hit the ace which would still be behind to a king. Is there more value in the long run by just calling and letting him barrel the river though?

      What do you think he does on the river with Kx/Ax and his air?

      Once you decide this, you will realise calling turn is best as we stack all his value hands on the river and it gives him a chance to keep bluffing/valuebetting worse hands

      Hello numbnutter,

      Do you think he is capable of to continue bluffs on the river? If you do then just call cause he is betting the river anyways. But now again from his bet sizing we could say that we wont accomplish much value on the river anyways. Any Kx is paying no matter what and at the same time Ax will Call at least once as well and feel maybe even committed to the pot on river. :) So raising is totally fine, will make sure that we will be able to play for the stacks if he has just Ax.

      Best Regards.
