      At the time of playing I didn't even realize smth could have got ther with backdooring. It was instinctly an easy value shove for me. Am I wrong? After evaluating I see only combos that we can legit. be afraid of are 8d9d, 5d7d, 7dTd(not even sure if last two are in his coldcalling range).

      I think BB's range when he leads here is either flush draws or sets. I don't think it is a good idea to raise the Flop against such a polarized range, unless you felt he also leads with KQ and KJ.

      As played, If you think your hand is best on the Flop, the turn and river hardly change anything so I would shove it on the River. But I think it's potentially overplaying for 120bb, since I don't expect people to just lead/call KQ in 3way and just stack off for 3 streets of betting.

      I would call down and bet if checked to. If flush draws complete, I would contemplate folding (since I am sticking with the assumption that people are leading a polarized range in 3way pots).
