      Hello shivas80,

      Preflop: Both plays are fine, either you 3bet or just Call. Depending on the opponent I act accordingly.
      Postflop: Would as well rather let him try to bluff against you, he might even capable of doing that. Therefore like your line, nice hand!

      Best regards.

      I just wanted to ask what influences our decision to 3bet with a hand like KQs, it plays very good postflop and we really dont want to fold out dominated hands like KT,QT,etc. I guess if he calls a lot of 3bets we should 3bet? :f_grin:
      Best regards

      Factors like:
      1) Does he call you light?
      2) Does he play back on you on flop like Check/Raise, donk a lot?
      3) Is he rather nitty opponent who doesn't steal that often?

      And those are the basic questions what you should ask, mainly if you rather want to play in smaller pot against aggressive opponent or want to play in bigger one against straight forward player. For example against that stealer you could as well do the 3bet for value depending on how he does play postflop.
