      Hi.

      You should probably call the river. I dont see how the king actually helps his range. I doubt he ever raises KQ here since he is tight and probably doesnt have a merged flop raising range.

      I think the king makes it likelier for him to bluff and my guess is that if he has KsXs he would check back the river.

      Thanks.

      Hello,

      Your hand is probably strong enough to also 3bet and get it but I don't mind just flatting if you have no other dynamic with him. His raise flop cbet should be a lot higher BvB than in other spots.

      As played, you have to call down on those blanks imo.. If he has Kx with spades and bets like this, he has Ax with spades that missed as well very likely.. KQ completed ofc but how likely does he raise that on the flop? If he does, you should be evem more inclined to 3bet since he has a wider range for value of made hands. I would expect some AQ, KQ and mostly flushdraws to stack off.
