      Hero shows K:heart: K:diamond:

      10 hands on villain. I'm unsure on squeezing pre because the caller is a whale and although I think he'll put tons in with TP even multiway, I don't know if he'll call the squeeze pre.

      Then we have postflop play :p I'm betting turn to Check river

      Hi Daphunk,

      These is one of those spots where you want to isolate CO, the fishy guy. We have too good of a hand to just call to try to keep him in. Most of these massive whales cold call a lot of 3-bets there so we should raise for pure value.

      As played there is some value in betting vs KQ and some small draws.
