      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, K.
      MP3 raises to $1.50, CO folds, Hero calls $1.50, SB raises to $6.50, BB folds, MP3 raises to $16.00.

      Final Pot: $24.5.

      MP 1.3k hands

      open MP 15%
      fold to 3bet 50%

      SB 517 hands
      24/20/11

      I flatted pre flop for 3 reasons: I was not very active at the table, I was 150bbs deep with MP, and SB was very active and I think it was somewhat likely to see a sqeeze from him. What was not on the plan was MP 4beting, and big.

      Hey,

      This is one of those spots where I guess you're posting because he has AA, but we should just go with it, I would tank for around 20 seconds, then shove and expect him to call with JJ+, AK+ as he would expect us to 3bet pre flop if we had AA/KK.

      Theres so much dead money, ofc if hes just getting in QQ+ its totally fine.

      Pretty sick action though.

      Good luck :D

      I think if when you went all in you would instantly win the pot, you'd probably say yes ok :D

      Yeah, not expecting to win that without showdown. :)

      I'd like to 3bet pre, especially because we are deep with MP. We want to build the pot now and because of the stacksizes he can call to 3bet looser than he would normal do. If you are not 3betting KK, then what are you 3betting for value? ;)

      As played I definitely agree with tank-shoving :)

      We have a read that SB is v squeeze heavy, so I think calling is perfectly fine, whilst raising with KK is obviously never going to be terrible either!
