      Villian is pretty unknown, he stats seems pretty tightish tho, 20/13 this is the first hand he 3b after 57 hands. So i think using my blocker value for all possible 3b hands is the best play right? As i block some combos for AK AQ QQ KK what should be a very big chunk of his 3b range. I am pretty lost in this spot tbh. Please help me out!

      Calling the 3b with KQ is usually the standard play in these positions but I really don't mind 4betting since you have no info on his tendencies.

      As played, once you flop TP2K, you have the best hand really often. He shouldn't have KK/AA/AK cos he should ship that preflop. When he flats your 4bet, his hand is mostly suited broadways, some middle suited connectors like T9s, perhaps some suited aces, and maybe some middle pairs. Your hand is ahead of most of these hands on this king high board.

      So question is whether to raise or call. I could go either way, board is dry so I slightly prefer calling.

      My guess is that he somehow showed up with AK/KK/AA? That would be weird, so take a note and move on.

      Problem is on this network you don't see losing hands, but this person claimed he got aces. But on the other side it was saleryweekend and people are so drunk.
      I know I am not really scared for any flushcards but i expect villian to be like all weaktight regs are along with the recreational player.
