      Was abit unsure about Turn here, he could have called with AK pre, but thought it was a good barel card, but when he reraises me here he most likely has an Ax? Not sure a FD would do this, a set might.

      Should I x/f or x/c turn, or is it still ok to barrel here?

      I think this is an easy fold with KK. If you had AK it would be a tougher spot.
      From my experience vs Turn min-raises, even in 3-bet pots, this is the nuts about 75% of the time and every time i stubbornly stack off anyway because "it's a 3-bet pot" I get shown the nuts every single time.

      Should you bet the Turn here? I think it's fine to check Turn and then bet the River vs a fish (I'm presuming he is one because he only has 94.2bb at the start of the hand). vs a stronger opponent you can bet Turn and check River instead as it would look like a bluffier line, as opposed to checking Turn and then betting River which looks so much like QQ/KK.
