    Hey Split, with KK in that last hand, I'm just confused about one thing with your recommendation to check back. With a passive villain holding so much that doesn't connect in this spot, wouldn't flop be the place that we're able to get a street most reliably, With hands like :Qc :Jc , :9s :9d and :6h :7h where a passive V has their most reason for optimism, and when top pair is only about a third of their range?

    Yup, agreeing so far...

    Now I'm confused =(

    If V misses this flop a ton, why would we be able to get called here reliably? Yes, V likely peels 99 and 87, but are they really peeling backdoor draws? Are they ever folding better (now or later)? Would they make more turn/river mistakes with their flop misses if we checked or bet the flop?

    I hope those questions guide your exploration!
