      Final Board: 6 3 8
      Hero mucked Q Q and won $2.72 ($1.32 net)
      CO mucked and lost (-$1.40 net)

      I dont know how to describe the meaning of the stats in terms of if the players a TAGy or LAGy in 6max so until I do Ill just post there stats unless I have less than 20 hands.

      I dont have that many hand on CO less than 50 and his 3Bet stat is high but obv no sample, my plan was to 4Bet Fold because we are over 200BBs deep not sure if that is a mistake, I just didnt want to flat it OOP even tho I am getting enough for Call15?

      Are you that sure that he
      1) Calls your 4bet with worse hands (and I mean a lot of worse hand like TT/JJ/AQ/suited Aces and connectors)
      2) Only 5bets KK+

      If that is the case, 4betting is by far the best play. It basically allows us to gain value from worse and let him inform us of the strength of his hand.

      However, if you are unsure whether the 2 criteria above are met, then I suggest you call the 3bet instead and play postflop.

      I think your sizing is reasonable.

      Once he calls, I probably bet 3 streets (but you must remember the range of hands we are targeting which is 99/TT/JJ so we would need to reduce the size of our bets on Turn and River to reduce the pressure put on him and it would make it way easier for him to make a crying call when he is only faced with a half pot bet on the River).

      If the board run out is bad, like Turn T and River J I would probably look to check on one of the 2 streets.
