      "Turn: check behind for pot control and bluff induce."

      I think it's unlikely he checks KK+ and sets (besides QQ which is really unlikely cos that's only one combo). This means that he is likelier to have weaker hands like JJ, QJs, KQ. I prefer just to bet 3 streets since I think we have the best hand really often. Bet an amount that allows you to get called on the River.

      Do you really think he can call my 2nd barrel with anything under a Q? o_O
      I don't really see that happening :o
      I also bet in a 3way on the flop.

      I agree with you, but I think you can go for 3 streets vs KQ a lot of the time. QJs might also pay you off. And I think you are rarely beat here.

      KQ (8 combos)
      QJs (2 combos)

      10 combos which may potentially pay you off

      QQ (1 combo)
      KK/AA/sets (2-3 combos?)

      I really don't see him slowplaying too often so I think when you are ahead of 10 and behind 3-4 combos, you have an easy value bet. Unless you have the read that this guy likes to trap with monsters a lot for no good reason.
