      Hi,
      preflop vs uknown i would rather 4bet or fold. We dont know anything about his postflop tendence so far.
      as played
      on river he is give uping, I dont expect that vs unknown he would try bluffcatch. So in his range is AQ, KQ, some random Qx bluff. KK and AA he is playing with bigger sizing for value. So on river i wont turn my hand into the bluff. Cause you should be aheaded in the showdown.

      nice hand. i may 4bet KQ vs unknown but his size is way too small so defending is probably a far better option.

      I don't see any point in turning KQ into a bluff cos it's too strong. You might turn worse QX hands perhaps? But you are not even guaranteed to fold out AA and AQ and KK. Who likes folding overpairs in a 3bet pot?
