      I actually like an overbet here and would probably just shove it. Our shove is actually a bit less than 2x pot, but if he has one of the remaining Ts, he's calling us for sure. If he managed to pick some odd 2 pair or even set, he might find a call as well.
      We could also try to go for a 0.60~0.75 raise, but in my opinion the same hands will find a fold/call here so we're just loosing value by not shoving.

      P.S. Are you playing shortstack and just had a doubleup? Why call oop with KTo without a plan?

      I agree with shoving. If he bluffs he will never call, but if has hand I doubt bet sizing makes much difference.
      If you're playing BSS, buy in for full stack - 100BB.

      consider your stack size I think you shouldn´t play that spot KT
      I would bet out turn with overpair and oesd.
      You can shove river. he is b/c there with Tx and also maybe with two pair
