      Probably yeah, it's extremely unlikely a guy playing so many hands has you beat on that board. The main question is whether he can actually be bluffing on the flop or not.

      I think he can so I'd also just call and let him bet the turn, then raise at that point since we're not sure whether he'll fire again with bluffs on the river. If you don't think he's bluffing on the flop too often or that he'll shutdown on the turn most of the time, just 3-bet the flop he won't fold Kx. Something like $1.75 that allows you to jam any turn is fine.

      Hope it helps.
