      Hero (BTN): $27.30 (273 bb)
      SB: $33.60 (336 bb)
      BB: $9.70 (97 bb)
      UTG: $15.49 (154.9 bb)
      MP: $13.70 (137 bb)
      CO: $21.36 (213.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K K
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, SB raises to $0.70, BB folds, Hero raises to $2.20, SB calls $1.50

      Flop: ($4.50) 6 7 8 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $3.20, SB raises to $10.70

      Villain is 3b 10% from SB

      1)I s the 4b sizing good? I made it 3x because we were so deep.
      2) How much should I 4b if he was 100bb deep?

      3) cb size ok? I made it 3/4 since the board is draw heavy (flush/straight draw).
      4) Crucial part. How often is villain check raising with anything less than a set? ie 99-QQ, AKs? If he had AA would he ever check raise this board?

      Interesting spot here.

      I prefer raising more preflop since we are quite deep with SB and BB has 100bb. I think 4bb is a good size here in order to make the SPR on the flop smaller and of course I'm going to do this with my whole range.
      You could go for a bigger 4bet here since you are 300bb deep. If you wre 100bb deep I'd make it around 20bb.
      What are you going to do if he 5bets here though?

      I like your cbet size on the flop. Quite drawy board so you want some value.
      When he raises I think folding is the best. I'm not really sure if he even raises with draws here and even against the draws we are not in good shape.
