      Villain is 56/0 over 9 hands, so virtually unknown but obviously fishy. Went to showdown 1 out of 4, he lost.

      Wondering what is the best way to play this hand from turn onwards. Please highlight results after thinking about the hand as I put comments in there.

      Thanks a lot :heart:

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a full-house, fives full of kings(5h 5c).
      UTG1 shows three of a kind, kings(As Kd).

      Yes, one of the hands I put in his range. I was gutted to see the turn, and even more gutted to see the river, as he always has KJ and KQ in his range too. I didnt want to check behind river, as he still has ak, and may be even some kind of kts. May be some flush draws too? AQ? AJ? At the same time, I didn't want him to kicked me out of the hand. They way it played (timing tells, etc.) it felt like he thought he was trapping me, so I wasn't thinking much in a FD.

      Hero wins with a full-house, fives full of kings(5h 5c).
