      Can't fold the turn you get immediate odds to boat up against his QJ.

      On the river I really don't think he's bluffing ever. Maybe he can play some other Kx hands like that and we tie with everything up to K9, I guess it depends how wide he's calling preflop and how likely he is to take a different line on the flop with trips. From your description it doesn't look like he'd be going nuts with just Ax either. I think folding is fine considering we'd only be calling for half the pot at best.

      Hope it helps.
