      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $7.70
      SB (Hero):
      $11.10
      BB:
      $22.46
      MP2:
      $10.00
      MP3:
      $10.00
      CO:
      $12.79


      Preflop: Hero is SB with K, K.
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.30, BU raises to $1.00, Hero raises to $4.00, 2 folds, BU calls $3.00.

      Flop: ($8.4) 3, 4, Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.99, BU calls $3.70(All-In).

      Turn: ($16.09) 9 (2 players)


      River: ($16.09) 4 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $16.09.

      I 4betted him easily because he wasn't full stack. But my question is that what if he was a full stack and a regular? A 4bet would make him fold JJ-, AK- and I'd be behind his calling range. Calling could be bad as well, because if he has AQ-AK and an ace comes I lose the pot, and I only can get value practically from a Q high board. Or if he as QQ or JJ a K or A on the board can ruin the action.

      never feel bad if you go broke with 100BB and KK you will have a profil in the long run for sure!

      if he has AK you have 70%
      if he has AQ you have 72%

      even if he has AA you can suckout around 20% of the time...

      all in preflop with no regrets!

      I wouldn't be afraid to go broke even if he was a full stack TAG. But anyway if a TAG even only shoved with QQ+ I'd still have 50% equity.

      Hello Tosh5457,

      Preflop: Well, against BU stack I guess you can just ship it. :> But obviously playing it this way shouldn't be that off play either.
      Postflop: Although I'd still Check it and let him bet with hands like AK/TT/JJ which might even sometimes find a crying fold. :D We shouldn't be scared of much here, we are going broke anyways. But of course shipping directly ain't a huge mistake either.

      Best regards.
