BN: $31.40
SB: $36.47
BB: $25.85 (Hero)
UTG: $29.88
HJ: $25
CO: $25.23
Villian appears to be a weakish straight forward regular.
21/15/1.1% 4B-R
UTG open: 20%
UTG call 3bet: 40%
W@SD 63%
WWSF 45%

Preflop ($0.35) (6 Players)
Hero was dealt K K
UTG raises to $0.52, HJ folds, CO folds, BN folds, SB folds, Hero raises to $2, UTG calls $1.48
Flop ($4.35) 6 Q 9 (2 Players)
Hero checks, UTG bets $2, Hero calls $2
I gave him a tight range of 77-QQ, AQ+, KQs+ and I block most of his KQ and AK combos.
Against that range I don't think I am getting value from much except AQ so I decided to check-call.
Turn ($8.35) 6 Q 9 3 (2 Players)
Hero checks, UTG bets $4, Hero calls $4
I do not expect him to barrel very wide on the turn so this bet worrys me.

I think he would still bet AcQx combos.
I am still losing to QQ/99 and any flushes he now has.
He would check back JJ and some other AQ combos.
I am not sure how he would play his non flush AK combos.

This doesn't leave much in his range.
River ($16.35) 6 Q 9 3 2 (2 Players)
Hero checks, UTG bets $8.25
The river changes nothing and now I think I am beat.

I don't think he would valuebet AQ this thin given the action but it's still possibly.
With his average WWSF and high won @ showdown I think he has a very strong hand here a lot but it's hard to think what apart from QQ/99.

I am not sure if it makes his hand look stronger that he chooses a half pot betsize instead of a shove.

Is this an easy fold or crying call?
