      Am I just setting myself up for a river checkraise here very often? Should I rather just check behind or is a valuebet in order?

      b/c turn, your hand is way ahead of his 3-betting range, flop c-betting range and turn checking range. I would likely also get all-in on the flop, if I feel that my image is terrible- noone is going to fold Kx and I can get money all-in before some scare cards would come

      - it would mostly go c/f

      - since you have best hand close to 90% or maybe even 95% it is easy b/c to get value smt like QQ-TT or weaker Kx hands
