      I would bet the flop bigger, 90% of pot. Same with turn and would call his Jam.

      You haven't told us antying about about MP1. But I'll assume he will 3bet KK some of the time. On the flop it's a wet flop with a few draws (diamond flush draw, and a few straight draws, so if he has a set it would be a good idea to raise the flop for him.

      On the turn he may show up with 55 because thte flop bet was so small. He may also have some draws that he is turning into a bluff.

      Being nl2 he probably isnt the best player and has a anything from K5s to KK, so plug that into pokerstove

      KK-JJ,88,55,AcKc,AdKd,AdQd,AsJs,As8s,Ac5c,As5s,K5s,QTs,J8s
      and you have an equity of 71% on the turn and it's an easy call.

      Hi.

      Flop: Bet larger, like 3/4 pot

      Turn: 3/4 pot again. Vs the turn raise it's an easy allin. KK usually 3-bets preflop, so does JJ. Maybe he calls Flop with 55? He could definitely have KJ and occasionally he'll have some sort of flush draw or combo draw.

      88 is a favourite vs that range and folding here is way too weak.

      Thanks.

      If you have 71% equity you should probably think about jamming here, unless you think villain's range is highly polarized and only contains air + nuts. But he should have some draws as well.
