      I find it very hard to get away from hands like this, I know I only have top pair, but what do I have to make off opponents play here, opponent was unknown.

      Hello PaulieV,

      The problem here is that you can't really face tons of worse hands, don't see him even that often to Check/Raise the river for thin value there with Kx hands. Therefore it's rather a block-bet/Fold.

      Though I'd say such a dry board could still be a CB, even $1 is enough to get with it a free card for the river and some fold equity.

      Best Regards.
