      Hi,

      I would usually still go for check on the flop. If he floats he will try to bet now as well a decent amount of the time. Anyway, as played, you need to know how often does he give up on his float. If you don't know, think of what other hands do you have in your range here? Do you have any Kx to bluffcatch and not fold too often?

      I dont know if he gives up his flaots on river. How can I know that? Would it be enough to see him once giving up without showdown value and then writting a note? I dont see any stats in pt4 for that.

      I would usually check/call all streets with Kx which are not AK, KQ vs aggro opponent.

      You can know based on aggression and breaking down his range from preflop but we need solid info on that range from the beginning and not be left guessing too much.

      I would check/call 2 streets with QQ here and check/call down KJ and some lower Kx. I don't check/call that much on Kxx and people don't barrel often enough to make me check/call more, it works quite well.
