Just be extremely careful and i'd be more likely to fold and save your chipswith KJ and leave the soft hands for KJ
Had very similar thing happen to me w KJ in a live tourney.
mid min-raiser, caller on cutoff and I call in BB w KJ.
Flop KK7 I lead out. Raiser folds, cutoff flats
Thinking I was well ahead, I had to all of a sudden put on the breaks.
I check, He bets 1/3-1/2. I start to think I may be out kicked with KQ but definitely not AK
I just Flat
I check, he bets 1/3 again. I thought about folding but just flat called. He flips 77 for the boat.
Bottom line is if I 3-bet the turn or even check raise the flop there I would have prob been all-in by river and been knocked out. Just flat calling saved me
Not a huge fan of the KJ. More often mucked at the start to look for a better spot. I just think it puts you into way too many difficult decision EVERY time you have it
Therefore my opinion is just to flat w your example and make him slow down alittle especially bc he is prob C-betting AQ or mid pair which you may still beahead of. I definitely would not befolding on the turn to another bet unless obscene bet thrown out at me or board is draw heavy. He then probably shuts down by the river. Just IMO
