      hi, the guy's stats are 15/7/2.7(3bet) ag 4

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K, A.
      UTG2 raises to $0.20, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, 3 folds, UTG2 calls $0.55.

      Flop: ($1.65) 6, 8, A (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $1.00, UTG2 calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($3.65) 5 (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $0.10, Hero raises to $1.50, UTG2 calls $1.40.

      the turn 1bb bet and call raise was very stinky, like an ace that made a 2 pair or a set that slowplays. what u think ?

      Can't really think of a hand you beat there so fold is good. Regarding his range on the turn I think it's something like QQ+, AQ+, sets. It may seem unusual to call a raise with QQ after 2 signs of strength from opponent in a 3bet pot, but some people do it. Most that would make sense is probably set of 88 as he may find 66 too loose to raise UTG2.

      I think I would fold this on river as I doubt this kind of guy can to this play with AJ/AT or worse and you are behind anything else. Even some draws he could have pulled through flop completed. His play is strange, but people are sometimes just bad at getting value and he may just sucked out on you on river by hitting Q or something and now he thinks you gonna call everything as you bet flop and raised turn. So overall I think this hand is fine.

      fold is likely better
      Don´t really expect that player to show up too many times smt like 77 that he c/c flop, b/c turn and now shoving river
      you would likely see set or AQ just too many times, so i think fold is fine
