      UTG+1 checks, Hero???

      UTG+1 is 40/12

      The flop is a pretty std raise imo. But the ace seemed pretty scary, so I'm unsure about what line to take when a scare card like this hit the turn.

      Flop - what do you think he's donking out with? Flop is pretty dry I don't think it hits him and I am expecting to see Alot of weak hands like over cards or weak pairs that would fold to a raise. With KK we are not afraid of many cards here except the A and I would rather call. Of course if we know he's calling a raise wwith what he's donking with then I rather raise for value immediately. In this case however I think the max value linefor oour hand is to bluff catch.

      Turn - A is pretty much an action killer. We are not getting value from any worse here so I rather check back here and bluff catch tthe river

      Well I guess he is betting with pairs 55-88, T9s, J9s, Q9s, K9s I think he is more likely to xr hands like 33-44 that has flopped a set.

      By flatting the flop doesn't we turn our hand into a bluff catcher now since we are gonna see a lot cards ott that could give him two pair, and we would have to call to showdown?

      I think he's donking the flop wider than you think, add over cards 56 for oesd 67 for gutshot that's about right.

      And yes we are bluff catching because I don't really see him having Alot on this board. I'll be more inclined to raise if the board offers more draws like 89K or TJ5 more middling cards. I think on such dry boards usually we get more valuefrom bbluff catching than value raising. He usually has 4 outs or less to catch up aand I think we can be comfortable bluff catching with KK. With something weaker like TT I prefer raising because he's more likely to catch up
