      How do I play back against his squeeze? Should I just fold? Small 4bet maybe?
      How about river? Does my check on turn look weak enough to make him bluff-shove?

      This depends on what you assuem he squeezes. Vs a 11% range there's usually enough stuff in there to make calling worthwile because you dominate the range. Also KQs plays well multiway, so you don't have to worry about BU.

      In general vs a polarized range you should be more inclined to call as you dominate the bluffs, vs a depolarized range you want to 4bet/fold as you can get better hands to fold like AJ, AQ. However, if he shoves AJ+,99+ over your 4bet and doesn't squeeze much lighter you can as well just fold to the squeeze, there's no need to defend against a tight squeezingrange like 5-7% too much as the opponent is not exploiting you anyway.

      I think on the river we should defintely call. This is the perfect board for your hand and you represented weakness throughout the hand.
