      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with K, K.
      Hero raises to $1.00, 6 folds, BB calls $0.75.

      Flop: ($2.1) 6, T, 9 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.50, BB raises to $3.25, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.6.

      Villain 25/14 post flop agro 2.4 flop check/raise 27%

      I usually don't fold kings in this situation but this looks like a set/two pair so folding should be ok? Hes checkraise % is high though, what do you think?

      imo KK is too strong to b/f that flop, so I´d call on the flop and continue on the turn. If player likes to c/r a lot, then I´d likely would still shove turn, since he has there just too many draws

      On what cards will we shove turn, if get donked/checkraised?

      consider his c/r size he can easily have there tp hand+ always pair+draw type hands
      He would likely not 3-bet pf TT/99, so also his range are 66, 78s, TT/99, but in general I think we´re at least 50% ahead to continue against c/r
      We don´t always have to get all-in on blank turn, but at least we get more information if he also bets close to pot on blank turn, but very often he would half potsize with AJ or also his draws, so we should have there easy call or maybe even raise (depends on our reads).

      I think K is good card where to shove turn :) , but in general I´d likely would not try to get all-in but rather call him down to put him on difficult situation being oop if he has better hand than ours.
