      Hey VasiliZaitsev,

      Preflop call is a little lose. Might be better to defend by 3bet bluffing.

      I would rarely raise the KT3r, you are simply going to be flatting all of your made hands in this spot, so why raise with bluffs etc.

      You are going to have a good opportunity to bet river when turn goes check/check, or even check/raise a turn which co-ordinates the board where you can more conceivably represent value.
