      BTN: 177.9 BB
      SB: 109.6 BB
      BB: 83.2 BB
      UTG: 54.3 BB
      MP: 226.3 BB
      Hero (CO): 224.6 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:heart: K:spade:

      UTG raises to 3 BB, MP calls 3 BB, Hero raises to 12 BB, fold, fold, fold, fold, MP calls 9 BB

      Flop: (28.5 BB, 2 players) J:diamond: 9:diamond: T:heart:
      MP checks, Hero bets 16 BB, MP calls 16 BB

      Turn: (60.5 BB, 2 players) 5:club:
      MP checks, Hero bets 43.1 BB, MP calls 43.1 BB

      River: (146.7 BB, 2 players) 2:club:
      MP checks, Hero bets 69.7 BB, MP calls 69.7 BB

      Hero shows K:heart: K:spade: (One Pair, Kings) (Pre 81%, Flop 91%, Turn 95%)
      MP mucks 4:heart: 4:club: (One Pair, Fours) (Pre 19%, Flop 9%, Turn 5%)
      Hero wins 276.1 BB

      2 hands on MP.

      Once he calls flop, I think he is on draw, or AJ, so I bet larger turn. Should I bet larger river? I noticed the pot got already quite large, and wondered, who calls preflop, and then sqeeze, and calls 2 big bets with weaker than KK.

      The guy must be on drugs, when he calls with 44.

      Hey mlatasrb,

      Preflop: Since UTG seems fishy and MP is really deep with us we can even 3-bet larger. We can expect MP to call really wide here.

      Postflop: the guy clearly put you on AK. He was so close.

      As played I'd play the same to get max value from Jx and some draws. I feel that villain would raise at least on the turn with a better hand so on the river we have a clear valuebet.
