      PF: Squeeze to 7 at the very least. All of you are deep.

      River is kind of a bad card for you but I think you have no choice but to ship and hope for the best.

      He seems kind of nitty, he has 10 combos of boats and quads, 6 combos of QQ and some TT/99 combos which could potentially hero-call (though it seems unlikely when he's so nitty and stacks are deep). But he might 3bet QQ preflop, maybe JJ too. It's just a really bad spot to be in.

      I think QQ here would probably be a check/call or maybe even a check/fold. AA would definitely be a shove since you now beat slowplayed KK which doesn't want to play for stacks when deep.

      Check/folding KK here seems kind of weak though, and Check/calling KK seems foolish when I don't expect him to have too many draws when flop is rather dry besides flush draw. Betting seems to value-cut yourself. I think this is an easy shove at higher limits vs a non-nit when you have aggro image. Here, it is really dependent on your image.

      For such spots with overpairs, we are mostly targetting TT/JJ/QQ when we bet and hope for hero-calls. I didn't really answer your question but hope it gives you something to think about.
