      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (8 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      UTG+1 ($41.65)
      MP1 ($21.50)
      MP2 ($50)
      CO ($32.55)
      Button ($59.45)
      SB ($16.20)
      BB ($50) reg 19/12
      Hero (UTG) ($50)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K, K
      Hero bets $1.50, 1 fold, MP1 calls $1.50, 4 folds, BB raises to $7, Hero raises to $50 (All-In), 2 folds

      Total pot: $15.75 | Rake: $0

      how would you play against reg in this situation?
      should I call or 4bet to 14?
      I wanted to look weakish with my shove - AK and JJ, QQ, but I dont know if he puts me on a range :)

      Hello,

      You have position on him so you could call and probably get at least a C-bet out of him, but I think I would just 4-bet and avoid tough spots on the flop.

      As for your raise, I would go with $17~18 instead - I think just shoving looks a lot stronger than a normal sized 4-bet. Since you will be 4-bet bluffing sometimes vs a reg you should play your premium hands the same way.

      Good luck.

      I dont think it is profitable to bluff 17-18 against reg as the bet size commits me.
      If I was to 4bet bluff, i would make it 14,5

      probably 4-betting to 15$ looks weaker than shove pf, since then he can always shove himself AK and hope he has some kind of fold equity
      Ofcourse just calling and playing postflop is also fine, but generally people would 3-bet there for value, so you can also try to get it all-in pf
