      what do you think about triple barrel here? I think we have fold equity against Kx hands on river. I assume he doesnt have much Ax hand here, a lot of them he cbet. We also have some equity against his calling range on flop/turn.

      Here you might be wrong. If he has Ax he doesn't need to cbet. It is a squeezed pot and he blocks the Ax hands, he doesn't need protection against you and he will likely get the stacks in even without cbetting the flop.

      I still think your flop bet is ok but OTT you should shut down. Any Q or diamond would be a reasonable barreling card but by betting this turn you don't achieve that much.

      I would just fold pre-flop against a 3bet without any info of the SB. I think it’s tough for you to represent something on this flop as well. I don’t think you would call a 3bet to often with an ace.
