      Total pot: $102 | Rake: $3

      edit: rake not taken from the pot again

      should I rather call preflop or is the raise ok?
      I wouldnt raise if the player was reg, but this player was only playing one table so I assumed he is not thinking reg.
      I am not afraid of the FD on flop, as I have the K of diamond so I raise small to induce shoves from worse hands.
      I am beat by QQ and AA, but I beat AQ, AK, JJ, which could call. against QQ, AA, AQ I have 50% equity, which is fine stackoff even on flop :)
      was it fine?
      thank you :)

      when 18/7 3-bets then he veyr likely has hand, so I like 4-betting there KK and playing for stacks. I´d also raise flop small and shove turn. You should be ahead enough times to play for stacks and can´t consider folding KK on that board
