      Villain stats: 26/18/0/13.0 VPIP/PFR/3bet/aggro factor
      He cbets 83% and double barrels 40% of the time, sample size: 160 hands.

      So i flatted his raise preflop, i could've opted to 3bet preflop but i decided not to.

      On the flop i have no reason to bet or raise because i basically flopped the nuts. KK, QQ are very unlikely to be in his range since i have KQ. So i decided to check/call because if i raise i will fold out all bluffs and worse hands ( KJ, KT,QJ,QT, etc. ).

      On the turn i decided to call again because he double barrels so often. And he could still have a pretty wide range, although i dont like that J because i completes some straight draws.

      On the river i am worried he has 22, KJ, QJ or ATo.

      Could/should i have played the turn any differently ? ( donk/fold ? )
      Should i have check folded the river ?

      Hello Stevos1938,

      I am really thinking of Check/Raise the flop for the reason that he doesn't 2nd barrel a lot anyways and with donking the turn we wont achieve much either. But with Check/Raise we might even get called by some draws and of course even some TP type of hands.

      And as played don't really see that many hands what we beat, does he even bet with weaker Kx there for value?

      Best regards.
