Yes. I would 3 bet larger (8-9 BB). c-bet larger (1/3 to 1/2 pot), and turn bet larger (1/2 to 2/3 pot). Then check back river if called. I don't think it makes sense to 3 bet so small and your hand is not nearly strong enough to bet 1/4 pot on flop and turn then pot it on the river. Maybe you can try this line when you flop/turn a set or turn top two pair to get some value and keep ranges wide to give yourself a better chance to get paid off on the river. I wouldn't expect to get called by any hand that we can beat for that river sizing so I'm not sure what the objective was. I think we may get a weak Ace to fold but other than that we are toast if called and we fold out the hands we want to call.

re: Poker & $25 NLHE Full Ring: Did I overplay KK
You played the hand very backwards by putting almost no money in preflop and on the flop, when it was very strong. But then on the river you potted it, which as cOrnBr34d say makes no sense. What are you trying to accomplish here? Get him to fold top pair or get called by like KQ exactly? Its pretty much the only hand, you still beat, that might call a bet. And probably even not such a large one like this.

Preflop and on the flop, you made it absurdly easy for him to continue. You basically invited him to outdraw you, all the while offering him exceptional odds.
