      I probably overplayed this but where do you escape this hand? Or do you call it down?

      I think you can fold the river. KQ is probably at the bottom of our bluff catching range on the River so I would require a strong read to make a loose call here. Besides there are no flush draws on the board so he would only be repping some busted gutshots by barreling here (stuff like AQ and AT).

      Difference between this hand and the other one
      -Board is KJXr here, which brings more broadway draws, but no flush draws. We also have KJs as a stronger bluff catcher here whereas KJ is a weaker hand on the other board.
