      It would have been much easier if you had any info on villain.
      Judging from the starting stack and the way the hand gets played out - he seems to be holding a monster - however, he misses to raise flop or turn to play for max value.
      Nevertheless I dont think he is ever bluffing. Timing tells could be used here.
      If he instacalls all three streets he is not likely to be holding a monster.

      If you bet the flop and get called its time to go passive I think.
      x/c turn - x/f river.. or even x/f turn already if we plan folding river without read.
      You need to ask yourself - if you 2nd barrel there -what is the purpose?
      To get called by weaker or make him fold stronger holdings?
      Since the turn is a blank he is not likely to be giving up after he calls flop.

      I'd check turn and if villain checked behind i'd blockbet/call river.

      The river bet is awful. It's way too optimistic to expect to get called 3 streets by worse. Yes you do hold KK, but in fact you are turning your hand into a bluff on 2nd street already. However once you decide to bet out turn you probably need to play check/call river and use your hand as a bluffcatcher.

      What were your thoughts on turn/river?

      Thanks orojanjivu :)

      Yes, he is not reg at all. That's why the 3barrell. I am expecting him to pay with anything, and I don't think he needs ever an Ace to pay my 3 barrells as long as the sizing is not crazy. But as unknown, who knows... lol

      Hello MisClick,

      I see a point by betting flop & turn but what's the idea behind betting the river? What do you achieve with it, you just make worse to fold and value-town vs Ax. :D

      Best Regards.
