      As SB check/called your flop cbet 3way on a KK2r board, his range is narrowed mainly to Kx and pocketpairs here. I wouldnt bet the turn, because most of the time only better hands would call (Kx, or PPs, and you beat only 33/55/66, which would probably even fold to a second bet).
      So i would play checkbehind turn and ch/fold river, if SB bets any substantial amount.

      Hello ILuvBeachVB,

      I do agree that there ain't gonna be much value on turn from him. I mean of course he is a station but there ain't gonna be that many PPs which are going to pay you anyways. Rather take a passive line and Check behind and reevaluate it on river. You were still in multiway pot on flop.

      Although of course if you think that the guy is capable of floating light on flop even with A high and taking stabs on river then one option would be to protect from overcards on turn and Bet it for free showdown.

      Best Regards.
