Hi Forlnt!

The flop bet is way, way too big. 1/2 pot is standard against one opp. When the opp calls the flop bet, I'm checking behind on the turn for pot control. On the river, if the opp bombs it, I'm folding. If they check, I'm checking behind, as I have showdown value, but not necessarily the best hand.

K10o doesn't exactly play great in a 3bet pot. Flatting pre flop is best. JWK24 does tell you the standard bets ,which are great in most instances, but if the opponent is veeerrrry loose passive you can get stacks in OTT as he will call off with straight and flush draws.

Unlucky river!
