      The hand look very much straighforward to me. In case you were wondering about the saying 'if you call turn you have to call river' idea I don't agree with it. You need to know your opponent bluffs enough on river while he clearly lowers his river aggression quite significantly here and there aren't many busted draws he can barrel anyway.

      His sizing also looks like value which makes me even more inclined to fold (can be KQ too, not just AK+).

      I do think we can discuss preflop since KJs could be a 3bet for value in this spot against him. It would be thin but his defending range will be around 45% against you and you have position, initiative and un uncapped range preflop. Even though the regs in the blinds are awfully aggressive, they should increase their 3bet a bit given that your range is quite obvious here.

      Don't get me wrong, calling is +EV but you can always consider alternatives to decide which is MaxEV.
