      i didnt want to 3bet him pre coz he is just folding to often, and on the turn i pretty much wanted to represent a bluff so i think that he could call me down with hands like AJ and QQ for sure??

      Pre is ok, but notice that you should 3betbluff this guy in this spot.

      As played I'd usually checkraise the flop for value. You don't rep much and if he has total air and gives up right away there's a good chance he would've given up anyway.
      But when you look as his MP-range you'll see that there are a lot of Jx that will give you value on this flop.
      You might argue that he can barrel scarecards which is true, but generally people don't bluff that much so I think the EV we get from raising for value is bigger than the one we get from bluffcatching, which leads to the next point:
      If you c/c the flop you turn your hand into a bluffcatcher. This is not what your intention preflop was, you slowplay KK OOP to be able to checkraise a flop like this and get value because you don't rep much.

      If you c/c the flop you shouldn't c/r the turn. This line looks superstrong, so he will fold a ton to the checkraise.
      At this point a c/c on the turn is mandatory. The plan is to c/shove the river for value.
