      29/18/207 3bet 7 vs hero 33.
      On this spot, call is profitable? dominate bluff 3bet.

      And on K high flop, is it too dangerous to float?

      Sorry for the delay (birthday)

      You need to say to yourself what you are going to do postflop before you call preflop. If you are here only to hit a Ace or Queen & stack off, you have to think if he stacks off light enough to make this approach profitable

      If you are also approaching some bluffs/floats then you have to have a plan ready with ranges. I think there is not a lot of Kx in his range so you can raise small or shove or just call & hope he does not bet the Turn - it is up to you to find out what works the best as I do not have any dynamics nor postflop statistics

      Best regards,
