      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, K.
      MP2 raises to $1.75, MP3 folds, CO raises to $6.00, Hero raises to $13.50, 3 folds, CO calls $7.50.

      Flop: ($29.5) J, 7, 8 (2 players)
      CO bets $23.00, Hero ?

      UTG is a standard TAG
      CO is 21/17, 6.1 3bet, 4.4 af, 33 fold to 4bet. Seems very decent.

      Preflop: I guess I kind of have to 4bet-get it in, though the 4bet probably looks very strong, can't really flat and and let the UTG come along here.

      Flop: What range does the TAG player, flats a cold 4bet with OOP, that now pot donks this flop? I thnk he would ch/ship his AsAx AsKx, AsKs, QsQx, if he ever has those in his preflop range, not sure what he would do with like red QQ, probably c/f, right?
      So that leaves him with AA no spade, JJ to donk the flop with.
      And given that he 3bet a TAG UTG raiser big IP, and flatted a 4bet oop, and we know he's decent, AA should be the majority of his range here, right?
      Should I just fold the flop?

      you can consider c/f on Axxs board, but here you ahve to go with your hand
      He is leading there with QQ and also with draws. KK is ahead that range and you´re only loosing to JJ, but in 4-bet pot can´t really put player on one hand. With AA he should shove pf consider how strong is your line
