      What is he checkraising on this flop? There is not much 5x in his coldcalling range, so all I could think of is some PPs or pure bluff, so only 99/TT maybe JJ is beating me (if he doesnt 3bet it preflop).
      Calling flop and folding turn seems like a bad option here against this Villain. On the other hand calling turn and folding river would be even worse...
      What do you think?

      I would b/c always there on the flop unless player is complete nit. I think he would often bluff that turn card, so you should more often call than fold to then decide on the river. Since he is reping so small range I would call him down unless river is 4 or 7. Although a lot of times he would give up or check with some showdown value hands.

      best regards,

      This should be quite an easy call down. The king is unlikely to improve him and we have the non nut, nuts on the flop :D

      I.E except 5x we basically have the nuts as he can't really have a better hand than us, at least 99% of the time. We cbet and he could semi bluff raise straight draws and even ace highs that he doesn't want to call down with, but wants to win the pot right away. If he somehow has 5x or kx, then just make a note afterwards about his sizing and exploit in the future.
