      Hey lupara,

      Usually with QQ on Kxx this will be a pretty decent spot to check rather than bet. Your plan would be to check/call at least the flop. It allows villain to continue with a slightly wider range, which is good for you with an underpair.

      If flop goes check check you can then thinking about betting for thin value on turn and river.

      Having said that, vs a fish there is nothing overly wrong with your line and you should definitely be folding river.
