      nice 1st hand of the session
      villain is unknown
      plan was to c behind turn cause i think JJ/QQ are more likely to c/c a 2/3pot river bet + induce some spazz from floats + underpairs might stab themself

      river he bets and i dont even know if i should have just called or shoved, no worse was calling i guess except of KQ/KJ, i went for shove and... weee

      I think checking on the turn is ok if we planning to extract 2 streets (villain don't hit anything).
      On the river, you turn your cards into bluff. What kind of hand capable to call your river raise?

      in this specific hand scenario i prefer to just go for bet/bet/bet.
      with two K on the flop people won't believe you that often, and he is unknown so we have no idea on his stabbing tendencies.
      if he folds sometime then we're on our way to creating an aggressive image, although against this limit's regs that shouldn't matter too much. :P

      as played i feel that shoving the river may be doable, ie if we give him a river range like this:

      Board: K:diamond: K:club: 2:heart:  T:club:  3:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP3    50.00%  47.06%   2.94% { TT, 22, 3d3h, AKs, KTs+, KJo+ }
      BU     50.00%  47.06%   2.94% { AdKs }

      our river shove is b/e

      i don't think he ever bet/folds any Kx on the river.
      however, most of his preflop/flop calling range should be pocket pairs, and i think that these are way more likely to call your barrels than to stab the river and call a shove.
