      Villain min check raises the turn with three kings on the board after calling my 3bet oop pre, leaving himself $25.44 behind. Did I really just run into quads here? Surly a king is the only thing that can raise for value, considering hero's range is uncapped? If villain is polarised between only quads or air then this must be a call turn, call river shove? Or is it possible for Villain to have QQ or JJ in this spot, going for thin value? My experience tells me that a check raise on the turn is almost never a bluff.

      I do 3 bet pre very wide in this zoom game when in position, but I don't remember playing any significant pots with this villain so it is unlikely he would be reading me for a bluff in this spot.

      I think I would at least b/c turn.
      He may also has there aces, although he would likely 4-bet these hands quite often, but he may turn some showdown value lower pp-s or AQ/AJ into bluff, so I would like to see what he would do on different river cards and I think you should see sometimes free showdown if you´re against 88/99 and sometimes AQ/AJ bluffshoves on blank rivers.

      best regards,
