      On turn, should I shove because I had Ks so blocker and outs.

      You have like 1 SPR on the Turn so you get 4:1 maximum with implied odds on your call which means check/calling is -EV

      Now you have to ask yourself as well if you get paid out if the River is a because that's where you are drawing to and it is bloody obvious

      Also people's betting ranges are stronger than their calling ranges, I think shoving is +EV by default because sometimes they both fold & there is a lot of money in the pot

      Best regards,
