      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $28.24
      MP2:
      $25.67
      MP3:
      $22.35
      CO (Hero):
      $25.66
      BU:
      $28.18
      SB:
      $47.87


      Preflop: Hero is CO with K, A.
      MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.25, Hero raises to $1.25, BU raises to $3.75, 2 folds, MP3 calls $3.50, Hero ???

      BU is pretty much unknown playing nitty after 10-15hands
      MP3 is 51/0 fish

      I can always call playing odds.

      But if I assume I am against a standard regular that is a bit aware of the game, this means his 3b range from btn is a bit wide, esp. cuz I can also isolate fish very wide. Fishes range is not my concern here cuz I am probably ahead or flipping most of the time.

      So could I just raise/shove here?

      Hi,

      consider that read:
      BU is pretty much unknown playing nitty after 10-15hands

      I would just call pf. He may 3-bet there worse Ax hands that he would very likely not call if you make it 10$. He would likely go with QQ, AK and would always going to shove KK, AA

      If you hit your tptk you have easy decision postflop: either c/rai or lead yourself.

      best regards,

      Hi,

      yes, I think that is reasonable. You may easily be ahead and even if 3-bettor has marginal hand you can turn your hand into bluff and shove river if you wish so.

      best regards,
