      UTG ($16.02)
      UTG+1 ($10.31)
      CO ($2.96)
      BTN ($12.67)

      Dealt to Hero K:spade: K:diamond:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.30, fold, BTN raises to $0.60, Hero calls $0.55, fold, UTG+1 calls $0.30

      FLOP ($1.90) 6:spade: 9:heart: 5:club:

      Hero checks, UTG+1 checks, BTN bets $1.26, Hero calls $1.26, UTG+1 calls $1.26

      TURN ($5.68) 6:spade: 9:heart: 5:club: A:club:

      Hero checks, UTG+1 bets $2.84, BTN folds, Hero folds

      UTG+1 42/14/0.9 station
      BTN 42/10/1.4 67%cbet

      BTN has limp/called QQ and went nuts when hit a set the flop. Limp/folds a lot pre and plays pretty straight forward post.

      Feel like I butchered this hand but the reason I decided to flat was because in 388 hands this is the first and only time he has 3b. Given he limp/folds a lot pre figured if I 4b I'd isolate myself against AA and fold out any other hands if he randomly 3b them. Also by flatting I keep UTG+1 involved.

      Plan was to x/c to try get action from JJ/QQ(should he 3bet them) and keep UTG+1 in. A on the T sucks and when station donks 1/2 pot T I give him credit and fold.

      Did I butcher this? Should I have just 4b pre?

      Hello,

      Pretty interesting hand here.

      Although he 3bets for the first time, this is just NL10 and I'd just 4bet and play for stacks here.
      Calling is worse in my opinion, since we are OOP and we give great odds to UTG.

      On the flop, I'd just raise and play for stacks.

      Check/folding the turn is best here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Which hands do you think he'll stack off with tho? QQ+?

      Yeah probably should have x/r the flop...

      Yeah I really dislike flatting KK vs the 3bet as mentioned by kymupa. If the 3bet size is really huge (making it way less likely for 3way action), then it could be more of a reasonable play.

      Flop: No reason to call unless you think
      -he barrel bluffs a lot (and you would require him to have a wide 3bet range in the first place)
      -he bet/folds weaker overpairs (i don't think most players do that)

      So yeah, c/r seems like a decent option. Flop is dry though, and you were pretty unlucky to get the worse card in the deck, so c/c is not a bad play as well.

      But I think the preflop slowplay is the largest mistake.

      Ok cool. Guess I was just paranoid the only hand I'd be seeing was AA.

      Thanks guys
