I would like some feedback on how I've played this hand.
No particular read on villains since I was new in the table.

Hi Zevinar1!

With KK in the BB and a min-raise and two callers in front of me, I'm going to make a 3-bet here. My normal sizing for a 3-bet is to between 3X the previous bet (720) and a pot-sized raise (1275). Since two opps already called a raise, I'll go for the top end of this range and raise to 1275.

I flop an overpair to a board with possible straight draws and even a made straight is possible. With only one opp, I'll make my standard value bet for one opp, 1/2 pot (1138).

The turn should be a blank (unless they have 55, which never should have called a flop bet) and I will once again make a value bet. However, my standard bet size (1/2 pot) is now over 1/3 of my remaining chips... which meand that I'm pot-committed. Due to this, I'll shove the turn.

Unfortunately, the opp flopped a set, but those hands are going to happen. I'm getting it in on the turn here every time wiht KK.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
