      villain is playing 28/20/ opening 5,9 from EP/ 64 cbet/ fold to 3b 56 after 538 hands (no major history with him)

      CO is 26/24 after 326 hands and has 10% 3b from CO.
      Other players are unknown.

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($6.86)
      BB ($10.29)
      UTG ($10.32)
      Hero ($11.94)
      CO ($10.73)
      BTN ($10)

      Dealt to Hero K:spade: K:diamond:

      UTG raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, fold, fold, fold, fold

      FLOP ($0.75) 6:spade: 4:diamond: 2:spade:

      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.52, UTG raises to $2.31, Hero raises to $11.64 (AI), UTG calls $7.71 (AI)

      TURN ($20.79) 6:spade: 4:diamond: 2:spade: 9:diamond:

      RIVER ($20.79) 6:spade: 4:diamond: 2:spade: 9:diamond: J:diamond:

      UTG shows Q:heart: Q:club:
      (Pre 18%, Flop 8.3%, Turn 4.5%)

      Hero shows K:spade: K:diamond:
      (Pre 82%, Flop 91.7%, Turn 95.5%)

      Hero wins $19.41

      Villain is quite tight and he won't call MP 3B with very wide range. Is 3b still superior here?

      Flop plays itself. I'm going broke here all day long. He won't play 99 and TT like this. But he might do it with JJ and QQ. We split with KK and if he has AA, gg.

      If he only c/c flop I was planning betting big like more than 3/4. And I'm still going broke on this turn.

      R is bet 1/2 or a bit more for value. What to do if he c/c c/c and he c/shoves R? We're still calling with KK here?

      It's an easy 3bet here for value.

      I like your flop play here. Since we just flatted preflop we disguised our hand pretty well, so we can play for stacks here in my opinion.

      If he check/calls flop and turn, and check/shoves the river (taking as example this specific rundown) I'm folding the river here.
