      I´m always confused what to do, if I raise and I got re-raised with top pair not so good kicker. This time I decided to call and then see what he does on the river. He was also short stacked, so maybe he slowplayed aces, kings: who knows. Is it generally bet/fold, or bet/call and check/call turn or check/fold turn?
