      I thought turn barrel had still value.
      However, I didn't know where I stood river.
      So, turn c/c will be fine?

      I think you gain more value if you 3-bet pre-flop. Since you´re likely not going to c/r flop, then I would prefer leading myself.

      Turn and river are fine. I think b/f should also be fine, since he would call you down with Kx and should not have too many 2x/4x hands his pre-flop calling range that you should definitely go pot control on river.

      best regards,
