      UTG+2: $46.37 (92.7 bb)
      BB: $110.10 (220.2 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $57.18 (114.4 bb)

      MP2: $63.10 (126.2 bb)
      UTG+1: $51.75 (103.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K A
      6 folds, Hero raises to $1.20, SB folds, BB raises to $3.80, Hero raises to $9.25, BB calls $5.45

      Flop: ($18.75) K J T (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $10, BB raises to $35.86,Hero ???

      Villian is 14/9 3bet BB vs BTN 6% 14% vs hero but small sample).
      He folds to 4bet fair a bit like 56%.
      I guess that probably just calling his 3bet would be better but as played what is the best flop decision. Can we really b/f here??

      Hi franeczek,

      Preflop: What do you expect villain to call our 4-bet with? Without knowing more I'd say AQ, AK, TT+.

      Flop: Well, most of his calling range has hit this flop.

      TT, JJ, KK have sets, AQ has a straight, QQ has OESD and AK splits with us.

      Can we really bet for value? Only worse hand that can call is QQ and I wouldn't put him on too many QJ/QT/QK type hands (if he has those he also has KJ, JT, KT hands).

      So I'd check back here and play the turn.

      If he bets strong we can even fold the hand. If he checks I'd throw a 1/2 pot bet and fold to any action (and ck back most rivers).
