      villain 21/18/2, wts 24/442 hands
      I don't make a habit of calling strong hands in bb to trap but I think it's okay to mix it up sometimes?

      Only reads on villain I have are: "call KQo in BB; K92s7Ks ch/c cb; T ch/c barrel; R call 3rd barrel w. trips on flushing river". in that hand I had ATo, so(if he pays attention at all) he may put me down as quite bluffy. (ofc, also possible that he just plays his own game.)

      as played, any reason to slow down? I think we would often play this way with 89s and KQ so that we can get many calls from Jx ( maybe even tx). And I expect villain mostly raises two pair or better hands on flop so we shouldn't fear being beaten too often?

      Thanks

      I think it is fine.
      he would likely call you down with AJ+ hands, but you beat most of them and if he is really suspicious he may call you down with any pair thinking you´re bluffing.
      I would likely still 3-bet pf, since you don´t really want to play stacks KK on every flop, so better take also sometimes aggressive line and put more money in pf, especially if you have there high 3-bet % and you expect player to stack off very light against you both pf and postflop
