      Preflop is close, but i think it`s ok deep, IP?

      On the flop maybe raise is better?

      Turn? This ch/r looks to me like AK or sometimes semi-bluff. He might have sets but i think he is betting them most of the time. Since i dont want him to fold his bluffs and i don`t want to reraise vs AK i decided to call the ch/r and call or raise river.

      His river check is wired. Now sets have FH, AK still beats me, bluffs are folding. 98 can call a bet but i don`t see him ch/c this often...

      PF looks standart to me.

      Post flop I would play as I had the nuts. AK is such a small part of his range in a single raised pot.

      Raise flop.

      As played, raise turn. 2nd nuts + FD.

      As played vs unkonwns I valuebet small to get value from overpairs, 98, QT, sometimes Qx.

      I think flop is a definite raise. I would raise often in this spot and K9s is just super strong. As played, on flop I think your play is fine. His sizing sort of indicates value to me (close to the standard 3x) on a turn that improves your range. If he is bluffing 3betting won't achieve much. If he is value betting, will he call a 3bet or raise with worse often enough? I think calling IP is fine, could 3bet with some aggro dynamic and spewyness from your opponent. River seems like a vbet to me. He calls 89, maybe QT as well. I think FH would bet again anyway so you have the second nuts and can be perceived to have some KT type hand or busted FD.
