      I decided to slowplay flop to induce a bluff on turn, this is not my standard play though. That overbet on river really looks like a bluff for me so I decided to go broke here hoping that maybe KQ would pay me off if he isn't bluffing here.

      pre flop - looks fine

      flop - i think we should bet here, we have the nuts and can go for 3 streets of value. has he proven to be capable of bluffing on turns when we check the flop and after donking the turn would he call wide against a raise? if we dont have that information i think we get more value from just betting immediately on the flop and hoping for weaker hands to call too often.

      turn - as played it appears that hes betting out as a bluff, we have the K and i dont think anything is betting here other than Kx and full houses so i think our value comes from bluff catching

      river - i think KQ would not overbet the river and when we raise he could fold KQ and thats really thin, maybe he has KJ in his range thats about it. we are isolating against his strongest hands like full houses and slowplayed AA so i prefer a call here to take a showdown against his entire range of bluffs + value
