      Reraise on flop and call if put allin. You don't want to play KK multiway and you don't want to give freecards. If he's on trips you lose anyways. It's a nice board that other pocket pairs and 9A and even draws would call you down.

      Such a hand is just really variance heavy.
      So when you use stats, you can use them to read your oponnents.

      As played reraise/fold flop.
      If you just get called, you bet/fold turn.

      And at the river you have a though decision to make :D

      There is no room to raise/fold or bet/fold turn, I am commited, he can then push draws profitably if I raise/fold.

      Then go allin ... you can't let them draw out on you.

      I think you still have enough in your chipstack to fold to an allin on the river.

      I like coldcall on the flop, since if you get there all-in, you´re mostly crushed by set/two pair.
      I wo0uld never likely c/f river, but really not sure if I should shove for value, it is very hard to just one pair to call you down, but since all the draws missed, shove is likely better than c/c or c/f.
