      BTN: $17.14 (171.4 bb)
      Hero (SB): $25.53 (255.3 bb)
      BB: $5 (50 bb)
      UTG: $14.49 (144.9 bb)
      MP: $10.30 (103 bb)
      CO: $24.59 (245.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K K
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.90, BB folds, BTN raises to $2.30, Hero calls $1.40

      Flop: ($4.70) J T 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $2.50, Hero calls $2.50

      Turn: ($9.70) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($9.70) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $6.30, BTN raises to $12.34 and is all-in, Hero calls $6.04

      BTN is 11/9, Steal:11, 3bet:0 in 95 hands.

      Im pretty sure 5bet/broke is +EV vs him even 170 bb deep, but correct me if im wrong.

      My real question is, is flatcall better than 5betting?

      In my opinion, 5betting from me vs a nit's 4bet reps way too much strength, he cant stack off with too many things, i have way too much FE. But if i flatcall his 4bet, i can win more vs his bluffs, cause he can think im on AQ/JJ something and can try to barrel me on some boards, or he can be on AQ himself and hit a Q etc.

      So, flatcall vs 5bet, both are +EV (at least i think so), but which has the most EV?

      Hello Absolutism,

      You have to fix your 3bet size in first place, especially being OOP and being so deep, has to be bigger, I'd go for at least 4x.

      But otherwise as played calling the 4bet is definitely an option if we also assume he is a reg-type of player and we didn't have any history. He will fold most likely anyways with a weak range.

      Best Regards.

      Hi!

      First 95 hand is not enought to decide his range ,especially how many hands he fold , steal vs resteal ,especially in zoom poker ? play the standard 3bet/5Bet .

      Why not? :D It's Blind vs BTN, so the ranges are very wide there even for ZOOM.
