      Anon table.

      As we are 170bb deep, do you think it's better to 4bet preflop with KK, and call if he 5bet shoves? Against unknown (seemed reggish) maybe it's too optimistic that he would shove AK/QQ here...
      Flop/turn? After calling preflop, and having the K, I think it's better to call flop/turn as well, and keep his range wider.
      River? After his check I excluded A, as I think he would bet that for value, so I made a small valuebet against AA, maybe Q:sQ/J:sJ. Maybe a smaller one would be better, around 10$?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Preflop: Both options are considerable with specific dynamics and for example our image being loose.
      Postflop: Pretty standard, not much to comment. Sizing is better this way.

      Best Regards.

      Because less likely to induce bluffs? :)

      Doubt that we going to see that often bluffs there, rather that I assume him calling still with J/Q even vs the $15 back so they are kinda equal.
