      I expect him to 4B KK and AA. His raise looked to me like KsJs,AsKs, ofc he could also have JJ maybe QQ. I dont think he is defending 9T.
      Being OOP it is either a fold or a push what ya think?

      I agree with your reasoning and also how you played the hand - oop we cant really just call the raise and I think there are enough drawing hands that we cant really fold.

      You played it perfect, any other way to play would be a big mistake.

      There are 100% sure enough draws en pair+draw (incl. TT/99 !) in his range to go broke here.

      Hello Dublimax,

      I also totally agree with your thoughts, he would definitely 4bet us with KK or AA. About postflop I'd say that he may take such lines as well with some overcards as hands like AsKs or something similar or even weaker draw and QQ is unlikely to have him since we already have one Q and only reasonable hand is JJ but more often he might even just try to play tricky with it against us and ship it on turn. Therefore I'd also prefer to just get my money in in 3bet pot, Bet/Shove.

      Best regards.
