Final Pot

villain is a reg who definitely has 88-JJ well within his range.

i felt like the flop was a WA/WB spot? i guess villain could have a diamond draw, though i dont think there are many Axs hands in his range; 98dd/76dd are really about it.

so i checked it back, with the intention of value-betting most turns.

when villain led on the turn, i figured my two queens made KQ sufficiently unlikely, so a raise was okay? betting a set here would be pretty awful, but i felt like this guy could legitimately be betting 99 here.

river, i figure that what im aiming to get value from is a 99-type hand, and i felt like a two-thirds pot bet would get called here while a shove would definitely induce a fold so ... i went for value.

thoughts on the way i played the hand?

should i ever be concerned about villain holding KQ, or should i generally be pretty happy if villain seems quite willing to get stacks in on the turn/river?
