      Hello xoshix33,

      Preflop: You don't have to always 3bet here and if you do then you should also do it bigger than give him even odds for Call with PPs for example.

      As played
      Postflop: Depends on the opponent we are against, from that we can decide either to CB or not. If he is rather tight and doesn't Call many 3bets I would even consider just giving up on the flop, his range contains a lot of broadways which have the Kx in the range.

      Best Regards.

      about my 3bet preflop, how much should i usually 3bet.
      most of the strategy articles i read suggest 3x but it seems 3x is not enough?

      Strategy article says vs 4xBB open-raise most likely. :) Therefore vs 2x/3xBB opens I would do it 4x, especially being OOP.
