      River: ($107.20, 2 players) Q:club:

      I didn't 3B because he folds 95% of the time.
      When he raises my donk I rule out Straight, he could have 78,89,9T,TT+.
      Should I raise/shove on flop?

      By C/R turn I was thinking that he could value bet TT+ but am I in fact turning my KKs into a bluff?

      not the best board to play for stacks with your overpair so I think I´d played the same way: b/c flop and then c/rai that turn card
      If he has there overpairs: TT-QQ he would likely play the same way and he can try to bluff you out with his straight draws

      preflop I like for your reasoning.

      not sure how many connectors has in his tight 12% pfr range. Think he may even ch/b TT Quite often on turn once his raise gets called on the flop - as he has to worry about being up against a set.

      turn is tricky, I probably end up ch/c and maybe ch/f river since I think he has it when he bets the river. I think that TT even plays flop passively often, just calling your donk

      if we ch/r turn i think its hard to get called by worse - only TT really - as I said, with his tight range he has hardly any Tx hands other than TT (and he probably just calls 55 on the flop also since he cant raise for value).
