      Don´t post results.
      He could hold Qx, but if he called with Qx, then he could also hold any pp.
      So I would probably call his shove.

      A bet on the river might have saved you some money (either you fold on his C/R or his river bet).

      Playing for decent stacks with TPTK/Overpair kind of hands is very tricky and may burn holes in your pockets real fast if you're set on calling ALL-INs on the river with them.

      I fold the river. You are beating nothing than a bluff. Overbet shoves are rarely bluffs, so I do lay down my KK here.
