      Villain is 30/23 over 31 hands.

      Pre I wasn't sure whether to defend passively or to 3bet. Which would be better here, and why? Or would you even consider a fold here?

      As played, pretty standard? I figured I had to call the turn as well, because he could still be betting some worse hands as well including flush draws or possibly even a second pair type hand. On the river I don't think I'm ever good though.

      pre flop - our hand is good enough for a call, we can 3bet worse hands. we generally want to be playing a wide range on the BB vs SB and Kxs hands are all good enough for calls usually unless against a very tight range then we want to turn it into a 3betbluff.

      as played we can call flop and turn but i dont think hes bluffing the river so its a river fold.

      well played.
