      NO STATS
      Was this a right play? first I thought he is SSS once he check/raise, than I see he only called my bet, so immediately NO SSS. QQ+ he would have raise preflop.
      Could he have some carp like Kxs, but hardly since KK on the board. Maybe Axs so he is drawing on a flush and wants to scare off my contibet in case i missed? or maybe a small pocket pair?
      I decided to call.

      I would've played it exactly the same. Odds of Kx are low with 2 on the board. He could be trapping with QQ+ but unlikely so I definetely go broke here like you did. NH.

      It depends more on the timing and on the spot thinking against Fish to determine whether you want to call.

      In this case I won't fold my JJ since I have one of the best PP in this hand + flushdraws may check/raise as well

      Yeah well you were ahead 90/10

      but dont think binaries as in ''I am ahead so I should WIN'' this is human nature and you have to resist to this thinking because it is bad

      If it is 90/10, he should expect to win 10% of 40bb pot so in this case 4bb=$0.8
      You would win (everytime you play this hand) a whopping $7.2
