      iPoker - $0.50 NL - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      CO: $50.45
      BTN: $55.93
      Hero (SB): $64.79
      BB: $58.82 VP:22/PR:18/Fold BB to Steal 76%/Fold to CBet:84%
      UTG: $25.44

      Hero posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero has K:heart: A:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $1.50, BB raises to $4.50, Hero raises to $11.50, BB calls $7.00

      Flop: ($23.00, 2 players) 2:club: 8:spade: 7:club:
      Hero checks, BB checks

      Turn: ($23.00, 2 players) 2:diamond:
      Hero checks, BB checks

      River: ($23.00, 2 players) 5:club:
      Hero checks, BB checks

      I usually 4B about 2.5x to balance with my 4B bluffs. Since I am OOP should I 4B a bit more like 3x?
      The question then is should I CBet? If so I guess I have to fold to a push.
      Should I barrel on turn or river?

      I think i'd try to cbet/fold, since he's folding so much and i doubt he will push hand worse than urs. About 4bet sizing, i think it's possible to make it bigger if u're OOP

      4bet sizing is fine.

      I don't really think you can cbet/fold this (unless you make it really small, but then you induce too much spew, which you don't want if you're looking to cbet/fold obviously), especially if you can discount AA/KK from his range.

      Check/fold is probably the safest solution.

      I would make it oop at least 12-13$ that people won´t call me too often. Postflop I´d likely still c-bet/fold to 11$, since I think he won´t shove there too often worse hands and it is quite difficult to get AK to showdown
