      Couldn't understand the line he took at all, and didn't feel that I could fold. I thought he'd show me a worse two pair.

      Howdy,

      The thing is we should expect him to 3bet AA/KK and even QQ preflop, I doubt he peeled off that flop with 99, so I think it comes down to two pair/straight and against that range:

      Board: Kc As Qd
      Dead:

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 48.896% 48.27% 00.62% 13381 173.00 { AdKh }
      Hand 1: 51.104% 50.48% 00.62% 13993 173.00 { AQs, KQs, JTs, AQo, KQo, JTo }

      If we exclude JTo we have 72% equity, so I think your line is fine, just bet more on the flop and turn. Given your smallish bets I think he could easily raise there with worse two pair hands.

      Ofc that's against unknown as you didn't give any information, if you have more ideas how he plays, you can adjust accordingly.

      Good luck!
