      tough to get all 200 BB in freeplay pot :P

      well, you basically have the nuts since he probably won't play KK that way.
      i think your play is fine, but i think i just 4bet the flop for 1.5~2x. when they 3bet postflop it usually means that they just want to get it in eventually.

      Hi,

      his 3-bet on dry board is so strange that I would give him some kind of two pair or 33. Given that read I would try getting all the money in the pot before some scary cards come to him. I think 4-betting to 2.6$ seems better than just flatting.

      You should raise turn to make sure all the money goes in.

      best regards,
