      Villain's stats,

      Preflop, when playing the HEM shows that he open raise 7% from EP ( I don't know why the above shows 9%). If I 4bet then I isolate myself to KK+.
      So, I just call preflop.
      I think I have to raise with QQ on the Flop because I don't like to see any A or K on the Turn. do you think raise shove on Flop is fine?
      Usually, I will call with AK on the Flop to float on Turn when he checks.
      So, it is very obvious that when I raise on Flop then it is QQ (KK+ will 4bet preflop) and when call then it is AK that try to float on Turn.
      Do you think call preflop with QQ+ vs UTG open raise is good?
      So, we can balance our calling range on the Flop.
      I mean we can call on Flop with AK,KK and AA.
      Besides that, I don't like to 4bet vs UTG open raise because they will only continue with QQ+ only.
