      Fold this to a 3bet? I havent seen him 3beting when I open from UTG and he is in SB. If I don't hit, I don't know what to do - he cbets and I have to fold. Plus if there is A or K, then his range also contains AK, KK+, so at best I am spliting, or at worst I am giving him a stack.
      If he has QQ, then I don't get much moeny on Kxx or Axx board

      I agree with the whole reasoning. Fold or 4bet, but I'd rather fold it, I dont think going broke here would be huge +EV.

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      Calling isn't going to show you profit in long run, we should either 4bet/Fold it or just fold directly.

      Best Regards.
