      Hey Gonchan,

      Preflop flat call is fine, BTN has a wide steal and you are ahead of his range.

      I think flop call multi-way is a little loose. I think you can represent a fair amount of strength with a check-raise bluff here. So I'd either check/raise or check/fold. It's not like calling is ridiculous or anything, just not sure what your plans are for most turns.

      I think river bluff is probably fine. You should theoretically fold out any pair, including KK. But in future you know not to bluff this guy at all.
