      PREFLOP
      Value 3bet.

      FLOP
      Standard cbet hoping he folds Ax.

      TURN
      Value bets vs JJ-TT.

      RIVER
      Value shove vs JJ-TT as villain seemed to go to showdown a lot. I don't expect him to have KK+ so hands that beat me are AQ/99.

      Should I just check it back?

      Hi.

      I don't like value 3-betting KQ IP vs someone who folds 70%+ to 3bets. I guess him opening 80%+ certainly helps in justifying your case here. Are you relentlessly restealing him preflop? I would recommend at least a 20-25% 3-betting range vs this guy, and then 3-betting KQ would certainly make sense.

      I think the 3-barrel is fine as played. I don't see too many AQ/9X combos in his range. You could also fire thrice with air a lot of the time for balancing purposes.

      Thanks.
