      I like it. There are very few hands that beat you here. There should be close to 0 K's in his range. I can only see KJ (which already beat you on the flop) and K8. Other than that, he can only have slowplayed sets that beat you. On the other hand there are quite a few busted str8 draws with which he could have called the flop and he might have something as bad as A high or A2, 55, 66 that has no sd value and doesn't know what to do.

      So, since it's very hard for him to have a legitimate hand here, I'm always calling.

      Well played! :s_cool:
