      Villian is a big fish and im 90% sure he has KK or AA
      The river is just so bad but I cant fold. Should I have overbet shoved the turn given im sure he has KK+

      If he is a big fish, I would raise on the flop to a bigger amount to set up a shove on the turn where we are not overbetting (to like 2.7/2.8$) since often his min3b pre is polarized and so on this flop he will call or fold imo.

      As played I see nothing more to do than go broke. If you really are sure that his range is KK+ when he calls flop, overbetting turn fine since he won't fold. But he might have some like werid pair + Ac combo so I prefer to just entice him in.

      Yeah you are right a bigger turn raise would have done the trick.
      That is something I need to work on I think, I do think about future bet sizes but I guess I didn't on this occasion.

      Thanks
