      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $31.35
      MP2:
      $46.33
      MP3:
      $26.77
      CO:
      $28.91
      BU(Hero):
      $25.65
      SB:
      $29.75

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, K.
      MP2 raises to $0.85, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.85, Hero raises to $3.75, 3 folds, CO calls $2.90.

      Flop: ($8.70) Q, J, 5 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $5.25, CO raises to $14.75, Hero...

      Villain is a solid 21/18 whom I haven't really seen get out of line in the 120 or so hands we've played together (which isn't too much but still).

      I put him preflop on a hand like QQ/JJ/TT. I felt like he could have been trapping MP2 by smoothcalling because MP2 was a very loose & bluffy kind of player.

      Now once the flop comes QJ5r, he has me crushed with 2/3rds of the range that I gave him preflop. When he check/raises, do I go with my read and fold or is KK simply too strong in this spot?

      I think that solid 21/18 shoudl 3-bet pf with QQ and JJ and don´t really see him calling 55/QJ oop (but maybe he does). So I think he rather has there AQ, than two pair and set and I would shove for value.
      But if you think that player would take that line only with two pair+ hands then fold is fine.
