2/5 1K cap game

Villain is very young Asian kid, early in the session so not many reads other than he was talking about online, etc. etc.

UTG limps, HERO raises to 25 with K Q from like MP... folded to V in SB he 3bets to 80, BB folds, limper folds, HERO decides that he certainly doesn't have to have a super premium to 3bet so we call.

Flop (170): 2 3 7 - V checks ...
...after he checks I think he could def have hands like A high, so HERO bets 80...V calls fairly quickly.
Turn (330): J - V checks ...
Obviously a great turn for us, I though he might be x/calling flop with AK/AQ type of a hand, so I decided to put a lot of presure and HERO bets 300 Thoughts on sizing?
V thinks for a bit and calls again.

River (930): T - V check again.

    Weird hand. Really depends if he's is 3! A4-5dd like everyone does now.

    Think more freq of that then ATdd. Seems like a very odd hand lol cause he leaves himself so short OOP knowing you check back. Ton of your range here.

    As crazy as it sounds I think we need to shove here and we good a good amount of time.

    Depends on the villain. I'd imagine there are a fair amount of live players who's 3 bet, check/call, check/call range is a lot of AA, KK.

    If that's the case then obviously bluffing isn't amazing..

    However, if he has some 7x AK, AQ A2s, A3s then bluffing becomes more appealing. However, I'd only bluff if you would value bet like 99+, maybe Tx +

    3 bet from SB is gonna be stronger than from BB, so I expect to see a lot of QQ+ take a line like this on a dry flop and try to bluff-catch. I give up OTR.

    Your turn sizing is very large, almost bluffs. Would you bet 90% with value, or closer to 65%. He could be checking overpairs, AJs, QJs, JTs of any suit the 3 suits lm the flop. Well, does he fold any of those for less than 600 more?

    I do not think it gets through enough.
