      Hello Tomaloc,

      from my zoom experience it's teh KK+.
      since he can only have 1 combo of KK that leaves him super weighted towards AA

      my usual plan is to call and c/c one street on rag boards (sometimes two, depends) just in case i happen to be wrong. :f_biggrin:
      this is how things proceeded:

      Doubt that you can do much differently if you went for passive approach.

      what is the option, 4bet/call or 4bet/fold?
      is it generally better than playing passively given zoom dynamics?

      Why would you turn such a hand into bluff? I don't really see how I could 4bet/Fold KK. :D

      me neither :P

      so -> if they are most often heavily nutted, passive approach is clearly better? :f_biggrin:

      Yes, that's the case in those situations.
