      I hate this card without position. Even if you hit it, you can't really play it against another deep stack. Except from QJTo, AAx, KKx, AKxo you can't really charge with it.

      What do you put him on here tht is beating you, k5/k8/85 are highly unlikely, that only leaves sets with 55, 88, kk, which are possible but you cannot put him on them directly. I think he is doing this with K with a decent kicker maybe Q or J as he seems quite bad and is slightly LAGy pre-flop. He could also be possible on a bluff if he htinks your c-betting often and tryign to steal. It could be a semi-bluff with a FD which he ios also capable of. I think I would shove here to get value from worse kings which I think he will call with or hope he calls with a flush draw.

      I would also go over the top and shove. If he slowplays AA or KK - be it. He might however make that move with KQ, AhQh, AhJh, AK, sometimes even JJ-QQ.

      if you face that sort of situation next time ask yourself:
      which hands does player would bet/call ip
      how often would he raise on that board for value or for bluff
      against unknown b/f is perfectly fine but here I could even consider just shoving
      because there shouldn´t be so many hands that he can raise for value (55/88/k8), so that leaves a lot of draws and weaker hands
