      why check/raise ? "77, 88, 99, JJ, who knows maybe AT, Ax." do not value bet and Kx call the check raise. and if he want to bluff he do it on turn.

      I bet 8 River, with your sizing you look like a fine value bet.

      I bet 0 river because most of the time he is behind the flop call from the BU as him holding KT+.He can truly hold 77-99 as i think he would 3bet JJ preflop with his position.Bu the only hands you beat is 77/88/99 so he is also super unlikely to be calling Ax there with the intention of floating on such a board.As i see he plays 30/20/1.8 he isn't going to call them that often.Check/fold river or call small bet.

      He should most of the times bet himself with Ax on the turn
      I think small river value bet is fine. he can easily lo you up with some kind of pp

      i think ch/fold that flop is ok with QQ in 3 way pot, but if u make a bet u represent a king and they fold smaller pair, ch./call river is ok i dont see value in ur bet river he call with a weak king .
