      35 hands, VPiP 29, PFR 9 SB
      BTN 86 hands, VPiP 13.

      Is my check behind ok on flop? I think his calling range preflop is mostly PP, and misses his board often. If I cbet he folds so often, and check behind can induce bluff.
      I call river because I think he doesnt bet Qx so large in 3bet pot even when flush is possible.

      Preflop we need fold to 3bet stats to BU and open raise.
      I think that squeezing here with KJo is fine.

      I don't mind checking back the flop.
      We can't take three streets of value with our hand so checking back and letting him bluff is good.

      As played on the flop, I think calling turn is good.
      What concerns me here is the size of his bet and I'd be very cautious on the river.

      On the river I'd fold here.
      I doubt that he'd end up bluffing here a lot with this sizing.

      From what I see, people mostly bet so large when bluffing (at least in 3bet pot) when opponent shows weakness because he tries to fold my Jx, AK, TT here. Or he might do that with set, but there is only 22 in his range, and he mostly folds so low PP preflop. So I think he doesnt have anyting in his range that beats me here, or just few combos.

      I would actually fold to his e.g 50% pot size bet, because with this bet size they mostly have nice hand which they want us to call (because I showed weakness on flop and he doesnt want to scare me with huge bet).

      I wouldn't 3bet here without knowing more, 13 vpip alone points to fold.

      Flop really matter on his style, i would cbet if he is unknown which is not the case but you didn't told us any info on him. I don't think bet sizing is that relevant here, usually we won't be good for 2 street bluffcatch.

      Well he could still has flushes, two pairs and 77 as well.

      I think that without having information calling here is bad on the river and I would just fold.
