The reason I said betting was fine (MAYBE) is because if you think he raises some hands that you beat (say all 2 pair hands and a couple of missed FDs) and you plan to fold to a raise, checking behind for SD likely has a higher expectation.
That's what I was asking, does he ever
raise anything but a K there?
I only need to be good like 20% of the time to make the call correct, so that ever is a pretty big important word. Should I count on some 2 pairs he thinks is nuts, or random spazz 1 out of 5 times or not in these situations in your opinion?
It's true I didn't anticipate the raise and was caught off guard, that was my fault in not planning properly. It's probably gray area, middle ground that can't truly be known etc. The biggest lesson from here is don't do something if you don't know how to handle a play / reaction, or if you're unsure it's even profitable. It's safer.
I folded btw, not that it matters.
