      Pre I should make it bigger(didn't pay attention at stack sizes). When he calls me his range looks like QQ-TT, AQ maybe AK. I don't think he's trapping me often w/ monsters as we are a bit deep.
      On the river i have him beat almost always, my question is can i make a 1/2 bet?

      I think pf you can also call profitable with KQ, but if you want to turn it into bluff then it can be fine also, just I think you don´t fold out any better hands too often (likely AJ/AT would 3-bet fold).
      Since you would make it small also with aces and kings I think you show profit making it small with KQ to then c-bet flop preparing to take pot down most times.

      Hard to see what hands he can call you on the river, so I like your small river bet. I think he would fold AQ and JJ/TT to 24$ river bet and it is quite optimistic to hope he would c/c flop with AK

      best regards,
