      Is raise with nuts fd ok? He folds often on this board becasue K is scare card. In the end it shows quite opposize of what I thought.
      Should I next time with top pair good kicker raise bet bet against him since he calls with middel pair?

      I'll answer second question because it's easier and less text: Yes, once you get called so weak you can raise top pairs for value quite often.

      Regarding your first question, I don't like raising the nut flushdraw here that often. I think you can make him fold just as much later, you have an overcard which he should bluff sometimes and you never risk getting thrown off your hand.
