      I agree with the Flop raise and Turn call. On the River I would just call anyway. I still think he can have some air here and the fish is giving you really great pot odds.

      Usually when players bet small (in this case he is offering you 20% pot odds)
      -Fishes bluff way more than 20% of the time
      -Regs bluff way less than 20% of the time

      So you can call most of the time vs a fish and fold most of the time vs a reg

      I think he can have 56/67/57/97. I don't think he has a King all that often, maybe he has some QX hands like QJ or Q9 or J9 but as I mentioned I think we beat enough bluffs to justify a call here.
