      Hero checks, CO checks

      Hero shows K:spade: K:diamond: (Two Pair, Kings and Jacks) (Pre 80%, Flop 92%, Turn 95%)
      CO shows 9:club: 9:heart: (Two Pair, Jacks and Nines) (Pre 20%, Flop 8%, Turn 5%)
      Hero wins 107.84 BB

      Should I sqeeze larger? It would be hard for them to call me if I sqeeze larger, and also PFR might easier 4bet as bluff, and when I bluff sqeeze I use this size.

      Fold flop? He raises flop 3/5 times in 3bet pots, so I called. I almost never fold KK or AA as overpair in 3bet pot on non ugly board when I get raised (exept when player never bluffs). This time it was a tought spot given that it is 3 way, but he could do it with Jx, or fd. So should I shove? I planned to shove on river when he bets to make him think he is committed (he is fish).

      Should I fold to river bet if he would bet? Also should I bet small river?

      Hi GingerKid,

      Preflop: Since we do have at least a fish we can add a couple of BBs because his raise is 3.5x and there are 2 callers. 16-17 is fine.

      Postflop: As played I would definitely just look to get the money in versus this fish and I would 3-bet small (give him a chance to put the money in the pot).

      As played donk the river, we don't want him checking back.
