      Hi kiromanAAKK,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I would prefer to bet the turn again as played but other than that I think you played it fine.

      Flop should be bet/fold. Generally loose passive fish won't bluff-raise here.

      Just because the result showed a set doesn't mean we have to be results oriented.

      With more info and a passive fish I agree that it can be a bet/fold.

      But a lot of fish are still raising Kx or semibluffs/bluffs on the flop so calling on street is fine.

      @Bogdan: Even if we don't see the result we should have default plan here. I think that 83/0 guy will be loose passive, unless proven otherwise. That's why I'm bet/folding here - there's not even that many weaker K's in his range, after all. I want a read that he can be aggro post-flop to call - otherwise I'd just believe him. KQ would be closer to call here, though.

      AK/KQ are calls for sure. KJ/KT are in the grey are but calling one street on this board is fine imo. If you want to er on the side of caution and play a bit nittier sure you can fold the flop.
