      It's true a lot of his range beats you as there is actually no hand that doesn't complete on the river : QJ,QJ,T9,89,JT,JJ,TT,88,99,67 a lot.But I think you should try to improve your flop and turn actions as your turn bet is a bit of crying to be raised.Bet bigger on flop and turn for example.Opponent will raise your turn bet there probably with most of his hands that even didn't beat you.It's alot better to rethink your lines as bet flop,check/call turn and reevulate river,to avoid being bluffed on such a river maybe you can ship the turn but if you think a lot of his range beats you on the turn than don't call the raise because as you played it's a bluff catcher hand which will probably catch a strong hand :f_biggrin: .

      Bet sizing is bad. You lost many value and don't protect your hand just bet about 8-10$ on such a board, and get it in. Cause there are still a lot hand to call AQ, KQ. JJ, TT probably will not fold cause drw.
      If he calls just put another stack on the turn.

      I would usually not b/f there KK, since he should also c/r there for value hands like AQ, QJ, maybe also TT/JJ if he called them oop
      Since you´re going to call any river shove, then best just shove yourself on the turn
