      I don't see a point in reraise-bluffing that flop. If you think he is just pushing you off, call the flop and reevaluate on turn. If you thought he has a weaker hand than 99, he surely won't pay you off with it. If you think he has a stronger hand, do you really believe you can make him fold?

      I'd check that turn behind, try to get to showdown cheaply after calling the flop.

      I guess folding on flop is a decent option here too.

      call pf is fine, but on Kxx boards I think you´re not really ahead that often that you can play for stacks
