      FYP. "Always" doesnt work in poker.

      didn't do that as 3betting UTG looks really strong and he will continue only best here. With KK in my hands its not bad yes but he will fold a lot of hands i can get value from postflop so i think this was the case i COULD skip 3bet but only thing that troubles me is someone could call behind and it could turn out multiway pot.

      u 3b KK in this spot always, flatting is just dumb, you have good effective stack sizes, there no need to 'trap' you should be happy getting ur money in pre and u shud also be happy with the fact that u isolate UTG, by calling all ur doing is saying "yeah guys come along with your implied odd hands and stack me on a 249 board"

      Hello nktns,

      Preflop: Doesn't really make sense to not to 3bet. You are just giving great odds for others to Call. Unless you are hoping to get squeezed here, I don't like the Call at all.

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine, he might as well sometimes take such a line with TP or whatsoever. Although you could consider even raising at some point but going for the passive line ain't wrong either.

      Best regards.
