      Hi,

      Tough spot. I don't mind calling tbh and playing a turn. If he raises a weaker king or similar on the flop he will often check back turn or bet really small and we can play well versus that. We can also save us some money if we miss and he bets big on the turn, as it's then very likely he has a 2pair or better.

      ifs

      I folded here.
      Its too weak?
      He can perfectly have AQ do to the small raise, and against AQ my outs are useless, and as he isnt 4betting he might have overpairs and sets..

      Yeah I don't mind it, folding would be my second option, I just don't like folding a hand as strong as KQ here to a single minraise :f_frown: , because if ever ever gives up on the turn or has anything other than 2pair+ when he makes this raise, then it's going to be a pretty bad mistake to fold on the flop. But yeah, folding would be a close-ish second option I guess.

      It's not terrible, but not a huge fan. Don't really think he'll go crazy almost ever if we check so it's not like we're gaining huge value, but at the same time we're not getting value by a ton of things by betting either, so I think it's fine, but prefer to generally bet.
