      Villain is 29/11 on 33 hands. When he checked flop I was like "Ah, he's checking mid-pair for Bluff induce or just giving up, I'll 3barrel him off it" however then the 2nd K came on river and I suddenly doubted myself and gave up. The thought "heh maybe he's getting tricky with a monster and do I really have any fold Equity anymore on that river card?" came into my head and I just gave up.

      Guess I should have just Check/Folded. Its just I'm trying to get a hang for very profitable situations like I think this one could be before I move up limits again.

      I would raise it up preflop.

      As played, on the flop I give it up and check/fold as it's veeery unlikely it has missed them both.

      If you decide to bet you have to bet all 3 streets IMO if draws don't hit to make him fold them as well as nines, jacks and weaker kings. If you put him on a strong king here just don't start betting IMO.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      I also like raising pf.
      I wouldn´t start barreling that board, since player take too many times calldown lines at least on the flop and turn
      I think most of the times he doesn´t have Kx so you can bet river and he´d likely fold Jx/QQ or smt like that. Just don´t do it against callingstation, they snapcall with 88
