      I would push turn. Of course Kx is a common holding on lower limits, but with second K showing up on the turn chances he is holding a K decrease significantly. He could easily hold a lower PP than you.

      This board feels like the Sahara: Dry! If he has the King, well you make more money in the long run because most of the times, Villain doesnt have a king but a PP like JJ or lower.
