      I am not sure if this is actually a standard spot. Villain played 13/13 over 65 hands and this openraising/calling with a possible 3-handed pot smells like a pocket pair, most likely 88 or maybe once in a blue moon 56, but I am not sure if he would be that aggressive with 56 on the flop.

      My question:

      Fold flop?
      Fold turn?
      Call river?

      I would have happily stacked off for 100BB on the flop, but being 300bb deep against this player made this a whole different story...

      What's my line?

      Poker Stars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (6 handed) - Poker Stars Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

      Hero (Button) ($33.37)
      SB ($5.26)
      BB ($10)
      UTG ($34.14)
      MP ($24.94)
      CO ($19.74)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with K, K
      UTG bets $0.30, MP calls $0.30, 1 fold, Hero raises $1.20, 2 folds, UTG calls $0.90, 1 fold

      Flop: ($2.85) 4, 2, 8 (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $1.40, UTG raises $4.60, Hero calls $3.20

      Turn: ($12.05) 7 (2 players)
      UTG bets $6.40, Hero calls $6.40

      River: ($24.85) 4 (2 players)
      UTG bets $21.94 (All-In), Hero folds

      Total pot: $24.85

      Hi Djma,

      Preflop: For one we can 3-bet larger preflop since not one but two guys are extremely deep with us.

      Postflop: I think that folding flop or turn are both feasible options. I think that calling down the turn just to fold the blank river is just a waste of money. I doubt villain ck/raises you on the larger side and then bets turn without at least a set.
