      Really tough spot...

      I think preflop I'd play cold4bet/fold. I dont want to flatcall, and play possibly 3way oop with KK, and this deep BTN could even call a bit lighter. But if he 5bets and wants to play for 250bb, he definitely wont have QQ or AK, but only AA.

      Postflop I'd plan to bet/fold 3street, but with smaller sizing, around halfpot bets, to give weaker hands (QQ, maybe JJ) to chance to calldown. Against such a nitty player, I wouldnt be afraid to be bluffed out in a deepstack spot like this one.

      Hello DimnjacarGogi,

      Your sizes are way too huge in 4bet pot, you are kinda committing yourself with the 3street barrel here. Therefore if you Bet that huge I'd plan to just Bet 2 streets & Check/Fold the river.

      Rather instead bet 1/2 and keep the pot smaller so wouldn't waste too much money vs the nit who most likely ain't paying you with a lot worse.

      Best Regards.
