      Hi,

      Like your squeeze with KQs mostly for value. Prefer c-betting since you loose to Ax hand that might easily fold to your flop c-bet+ you can´t really c/c at any street.

      this sqz is as a bluff with blockers K Q / if there was a fish in the hand i would likely call but even if the CO seems fishy he is also tight and passive preflop and i think he will fold a lot since his coldcalling range prefl is really wide

      i would cbet here and expect it to be profitable , also you can sometimes hit K/Q if he has JJ and you can also profitably shove some turns if you hit flushdraw/ fd+gutter

      How much should i cbet? Just ~$6 since this already looks strong enough on this board/ would play Overpairs the same?

      no, but if he calls for example TT/99 and flop is A high he would going to fold our c-bet or if he calls AJ/AQ and flop is low then he would fold to our c-bet.
      + you don´t really need to squeeze expecting that he would call with worse hands, I´d rather see him folding AT/AJ that are ahead of our hand or if he calls with lower pp-s, then we can often make him fold postflop better hand. Also it isn´t bad to take down 3.35$ pot without seeing flop.
