      Nice hand imo. I'm not folding my kings here either. I'm just calling him down all the way to showdown. He can easily do this with AQ & KQ.

      Depending villains it usually means either "i like my hand so i bet" with a distorted sense of hand value, or "i don't have anything, but please get out of my way" figuring if they check you'll bet and since they have nothing they don't like that option. Don't try too hard to attach a thought process to that from the fish tho, they aren't really thinking.

      Your best bet is usually to play your hand for it's intrinsic value, don't fold strong hands and don't call or raise with crap until they've proven to you that they do it way too often for them to always have something.

      In that situation i'm also calling him down, if he's bluffing i want him to keep potting air into me, and if he really likes his hand he probably won't stop either if you don't raise him. You could make an argument against some players to raise the flop and get it in since it's very drawy, but usually most fishes will play their draws passively unless they're maniacs.

      Hope it helps.
