      Hi

      River is pretty close and KQ is only a bluff catcher here. Assuming you have stronger hands in your range here such as AK/all sets, I think river could be a close fold.

      I do think you should be leading the Flop though, with the fish in the hand. This allows you to define your hand early and also avoid having a situation where the hand gets checked through. Your hand should be strong enough to bet 3 streets vs the fish.

      Thanks.

      I'm assuming you are talking about what happens if the fish folds and the reg calls?

      I think if the reg calls and he isn't too floaty here, you should just c/f the Turn. I expect him to rarely have draws here and he probably checks back KT/KJ so when he bets the Turn his range is KQ+ and you have an easy c/f.
