    Hey Stylo,

    Turn is hmm but I guess : check / call 1/2 pot bet -re-evaluate river with an inclination towards folding or leading if river is a blank, or check fold if he goes ballistic with anything more than 1/2 pot bet.
    Would pay to notice how was your image perceived by him, i think, if you you have a tight image and he holds 98, QT maybe even TT,99 one spade, he can find it ok to semi-bluff.
    I think flop bet is a bit too much (the board is kind of meeeh as 67o can come given his stack and image, sets, all these kind of hands that he might be calling). I found it to be a leak in my game to put this much of a bet on flops like these, and observant opponents take advantage of this with their draws. Check calling I think is a better line OTF

      Hi ImStylo,

      Villain is a reg-fish who is too loose pre and too passive post (likely because he seeds his ranges with too many garbage hands). So I would favor simply bet/folding flop and turn here. I expect KK to be doing quite well against his calling range, and not so much against his raising range. I would go like $2.75, and if he calls, shove any blank river for value, we can probably check/fold a spade.
