      I think it's fine given the preflop action. If he donks pot on that flop, it's likely he has an overpair and maybe some kind of straight draw.

      I put him preflop on JJ+ or AKs+o, but the donk kinda' ruled the last one out, so it's JJ+. Against AA I am definitely ahead, as he has less than 10% chances of hitting the set and a low chance for a split, KK is nearly the samen, but some split hands turn into his wins (Q+J), QQ has a GSD and the 6+7 split and JJ is the best he can have, with OESD, but even if he hits the turn, I get 25% for the river, so it looked nice.

      I used the Equillator and put my hand against 77+, AKs+o, QJs+o, JT s+o and I had about 70% chances...

      can´t really out opponent on straight in 3-bet pots
      like the shove, he would call there close to 100% with oevrpairs

      the guy had KK.

      How would you have played it in his stead?

      I would probably bet/fold to a shove if I had KK in that spot, depending on the opponent. He should know that he doesn't actually beat too much.

      b/c flop, you could shove there wider range than just sets
