Hand converted by PokerTracker 4
UTG: 64.4 BB (VPIP: 30.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands:
Turn:(15.2 BB, 2 players) 7♠ BB bets 22 BB, Hero raises to 94 BB and is all-in, BB calls 72 BB
River:(203.2 BB, 2 players) 2♥
I have a very small sample of hand history against this guy but I have seen this guy bluffing in previous two hands very aggressively. That is why I took this line of going all-in in turn but I want your opinion on this play. Thanks...

I raise donk bets on flop by default... Pot bet usually mean that he is strong so you might face set here but you might face enough TP and FD/SD hands so you can stackoff this flop at this limits IMO. As played on flop, his turn bet seems even stronger, he might try to protect from draws, if i have called flop id be more inclined to possibly fold that turn bet, i like flop stackoff more that turn stackoff in this kinda hands... dunno, its hard to let go overpair when you know that he can have medium weak made hand or random draws... IM OK with the line in general

Nothing wrong with preflop, but I make it 3bb more or less always.
On the flop, I'd be inclined to just raise to 15bb and stack off given your read.
As played, and given your read, I'm inclined to just call/call to showdown once we're here. Keep all his bluffs in. Consider folding if the Jd, Td or 8d falls on the river and you face a shove.
I agree with Draza that stacking off with an overpair would be better on the flop than here. If he bluffed aggressively in previous hands, then he's betting with air, but not calling with air. Once you shove, I don't think he's calling with worse.

Hmmm, looking at this hand, i'd say villain flopped something. Given his range it's possible to have played Q9 or Q6 (QQ seems less believable given the passive play pre-flop, if he's really that aggressive he would have raised, imo). 8-10 of 8-5 seems more farfetched (although 8-10s seems more believable then the other one ). I put him on a Q<something> instead (top pair, mediocre kicker) or A9.
I'd raise him on the flop, and shove and pray if a reaction follows...
As played, it's not wrong either

Raise 3-4 BB preflop.
As played, I am pounding this donk bet. Raise to 15 BB+. Donk bets are rarely strong hands, mostly draws, and weak 1p hands.
I would be happy to GII OTF, considering your reads.
Something tells me dude might have 8-10 for double gutter OTF.

re: Poker & $5 NLHE 6-max: KK against an agro fish??
1) With this guy in the BB, raise this to 4 bb. No reason to stay balanced against a player who isn't paying attention.
2) The flop is fairly wet, I'd just pump it up to ~20bb planning to shove the turn.
With big pairs, the sooner you get all in, the better. Stacking off preflop is awesome with KK, but if you're putting lots of money in on the river with KK unimproved then it usually doesn't go well. Get it in fast.

A flop donk bet from a Fishy looking Villian is not unusual but when he use potbet size that`s a sign that he got good hands.As DrazaFFT (https://www.cardschat.com/members/drazafft/) said that your call is OK cas V may have SD or FD but wiht the turn overbet he tell you that i`m ready for shove wich means to you that better fold cas he got Set or 2 Pair
