Raising my KK 5xBB from the BB, get a cold call and the limper calls. Bet on river, 2 calls. Should I slow down, or continue betting? No stats on Villains since Poker Copilot has some trouble running Zoom since the last update.

Hi Lovehouse,

I see no reason not to continue betting for value here when we don't get raised at any point. Unlucky to run into quads of course, but we will get paid on the river by QJ, QT, maybe AJ type hands if he's a station. Most players would raise the flop or turn with trip 9's on a somewhat wet board, so there's not a big concern with that holding... he's either slow playing 99 or JJ (and would probably reraise us preflop with JJ at least some of the time), or he's got a jack or QT, and it's going to be the latter much more often.
