      Heh, since it's HU and ranges are a lot wider I think this KT hand is a cbet unlike the other KT hand where you faced a CO open with high fold vs 3bet.

      Having some Fold vs3bet stats and all that kind of stuff would help here as well ofc but as a standard I think you get called by a lot more Qx, medium pairs, A high and obviously many worse Kx because his preflop range is wider, your 3betting range is wider and he has position. It shouldn't be that hard for him to defend a hand like K8s IP here depending on the dynamic so far.

      Given that he is an aggressive reg you can assume he 4bets AK, KK and QQ for value. When he raises he could have KQ and 55 basically and a bunch of AT, AJ, T9, JT hands. When he calls he'll usually have a hand like KJ, AQ, QJ, QT, Q9s, K9s, K8s. He could flat AT and AJ not just raise it but I think you get my point that his range should be quite obvious here postflop.
