      only 9 hands on villain, still he has double stack so i assume he is regular.
      Decided to call preflop cause we both deep and i can set mine. My plan on flop was to reraise cbet,
      but his bet size on flop and turn set me on alarm mode. If he has bluff hand, then i cant get value
      reraising on flop or turn. If he has value hand like AA,AK i think he would bet bigger. I think he can play KK, QQ, weak draws(semibluffs) this way. I dont think many weaker cards will call me on river and wasnt sure i will be able to lay down set against check/shove.
      Nice hand or huge nitty?

      Hi Tombic,

      Preflop: looks fine given the stack sizes.

      Postflop: Given his bet sizes we can assume either a big monster (KK) or a weaker hand looking for thin value like JJ-QQ or weaker Kx.

      Based on the fact that KK is only 3 combos and the rest can be many I think that we can bet/fold the river for let's say 1/2 pot. The bet would be for value.
