      Hey BjornArild,

      I don't mind your flop raise since BB bets quite small. I think possibly it's a little big, you don't want to blow your opponent out of the hand with JQ, KJ, Tx etc. If you play too aggressively on paired boards like this your opponent will fold out all worse hands and you will isolate yourself vs 9x.

      As played you can't really fold the turn just because you've bet so huge on flop + turn. You will only need the best hand 18% of the time to call. In fact it's possible your opponent re-raised because he recognized you were pot committed.

      You should expect to be behind a lot when your opponent check-raises the turn, KK is close to the bottom of his range.
