      Villain is an unknown.

      Alw sick if he has some freak twopair in his range but he should have more Kx than two pairs right?

      So fold is okay?

      EDIT; Betting R now makes most sense for me. 1/2 psb or 1/3? I kinda want to target thin value + don't wanna induce in any way, right?

      Based on his stacksize he could be a fish, so I'd prefer ch/calling, as most draws missed. Vs a reg I'd prefer thin vbet/fold though.

      I think betting about half pot is fine, maybe even more if you seem aggressive. I don't like check/folding too much.. However, it's a spot where you can argue just about any line vs a perceived fishy guy, including a big flop check/raise and turn shove since he never folds a flushdraw or Kx.

      I prefer betting bigger on flop and turn and then decide river.. C/c makes sense if he has enough busted draws but in this case he also bets Kx in his range for sure that beats you.. I think given the odds you can strongly consider calling if you assume he raises sets, 2pair and straights before the river since then his range is Kx or busted draws (including 76 type hands imo, definitely JT, T6, T9 and flushdraws).
