      Unknown villain. Flop after a raise play for stacks or should have played far ahead/far behind and just called the flop to re-evaluate turn?

      Being OOP, playing way ahead / way behind here is rather difficult.

      I would definitely only call flop to keep KX hands in. On the turn and river, it would be difficult to call two big barrels, though. Most good KX hands would 3bet you pre-flop, so I would probably fold river to a shove.

      Hello faronel,

      We could still consider doing that cause we can expect him not to be value-betting river with a lot weaker Kx hands. Though if we assume his range being draws + also maybe even Kx hands I don't mind to just 3bet it and get it in either.

      Best Regards.
