      I decided to call KK after very loose/aggressive BU 3B the UTG open-raiser.. My tought process was like: If I 4bet the BU, he will fold all blufs and middle hands. If I call, he can pay my K's postflop. Also, with the Call, I could invite the UTG open-raiser to call, too. I don't expect him to be on a draw postflop very often if he calls (I put him on 22+, KQ+, AJ+ preflop) so I don't need to defend K's preflop. Ofcourse, the reason against a call was my position..

      UTG: 17/15/100/8,0/108 (VPIP/PFR/Fv3B/AF/H)
      BU: 22/22/7,1/50/1,5/43 (VPIP/PFR/3B/FCB/AF/H)

      Hello Alleen86,

      Seems to be fine and I don't even mind. The UTG might even 4bet us with a lot looser range but if we do 4bet ourselves then it will give them hard time to continue with a lot worse. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
