      Hi.

      Preflop: I think you are raising way too large here. Your standard size here should be 4.50-5$. We want to have many light 3bets here in these positions, and you are making your risk/reward ratio too unfavourable for you when you are 3betting light.

      River: This is very dependent on opponent's tendencies. Vs a passive player a small blockbet like this is good because he will never bluff raise you here and just call with all his 2pairs or maybe even some AX.

      Vs an aggro player he may be very likely to bluff raise you here. You also need to consider how you are playing KX here. Are you balanced? Will your opponent exploit you by raising you here all the time?

      Your play assumes that villain is only calling with worse and never raises with less than KX. I don't think you can safely make this assumption with so little information. His aggression % numbers look to be on the higher side.

      They guys is not folding to 3bets so I choose to 3bet large a depolarized range.

      What is wrong with this strategy? I don't want any "real" bluffs vs this guy

      that makes sense as an exploitive play since he's only folding 37%.
