      First of all i know i was wrong raising K8o , i though it was strong enough to steal blind , the thing is how the hand developed. I know i've played the hand pretty miserably and my call on the turn was weak . I think a raise on a turn would have cleared out thinks for me . My weak call only gave him a chance to spike an A , even though i'm not so sure he had it . i don't have the license for my Elephant , and the villain was listed as a loose-passive one .

      your one option is b/f flop, since I don´t expect players top raise that baord often enough with a lot worse hands
      Other option is to b7c flop, c/c turn and then c/f river
      This way you´re hoping that villain can bluff turn and check back river with worse hands
      Other option which I don´t suggest is call down or 3-bet flop and get all-in, but there you find yourself often being behind
