Villain 25/3 and plays one table. Not sure if I was too thin given he donks pot, I think maybe if he bet 1/p or something he might have KX. Beat some random kx and 2 pair I guess, more likely he has a 2 pair or set though I think given sizing.

Hi pocket,

I'm not opposed to it. I would just call with AK or T8 but with K's up I think it's thin, but profitable to raise this action. I suspect we'll get shown enough K3 and 53s type hands (as well as some T8) that it will be a +EV raise.
