      Hi there,

      I know the easiest answer is to raise. But since so far he's a rock thought I might ask about it. Call/4bet? I think with his stack I'd consider just shove it right away, even against a rock. What would you do if he has a large stack?

      Thanks,

      Hello,

      Just go all in :) You have only 19 hands on him so you can't base your decisions on his stats. Only after 100-200 hands you can start using yout opponents stats to exploit him. You can never fold KK when your opponent has such a small stack, calling is bad since if an A comes and he shoves the flop you will have a tough decision to make so shoving preflop is best.

      If he had a 100bb stack I would still 4bet here, I have never folded KK preflop at NL2. I would only fold KK preflop if a guy on which I have 1k+ hands would 4bet me and his 4bet stat was less than 0,7% :)

      Hello cpers,

      While you don't have anyone behind you just ship it. Not much to do against his stack. :)

      Best Regards.

      Do you mean if someone called my raise and I'm facing a squeeze I should just call or 4bet but do not ship it?

      I mean by that if you have an opponent behind you then rather trap and Call and maybe someone else will consider of shipping.
