      Nice hand. I would't expect him to have Kx here or draw here. Most probably set

      Your small 3-bet is giving him odds to set-mine and call with other speculative hands.

      Once the nit calls us on the flop his range is TT, 88, 55 and JJ/QQ (maybe KK).

      Considering the Kx is a scare card and it's very hard for us to get 2 more streets of value from JJ/QQ I'd simply check back and play the river.

      If he bets the river big he never has JJ/QQ so we can easily fold. If he checks river we can valuebet and expect him to pay us off light more often than not (id bet 1/2 pot).

      As played we need to fold.
