      10 hands on villian, I previous hand, he was 3x barreling mutliway with A6o on 567, turn was 6.

      Should I bet pot size flop and turn?
      Bet river? It cant be more dangerous against my KK. Only maybe A8 A7 calls.

      Hi Mlatasrb,

      Preflop: Considering we are deep with a couple of guys and some players look really fishy I'd raise 4x UTG here.

      Postflop: You don't think villain can have 99-JJ in his calling range on flop and turn? I'd say he could.

      Considering the stack sizes I think we can still bet/fold and get value from 1p type hands. Don't forget villain can also have hand like 89/8T, etc

      "Preflop: Considering we are deep with a couple of guys and some players look really fishy I'd raise 4x UTG here."

      Now I am confused. In strategy articles I read that we should always open raise the same size with all hands, for deception.
      Should I then open raise each time just UTG 4x, or just with premium hands? I think if I do it only with premiums, my play would be obvious.
      I am always writting notes, how much people open raise, and especially if I see they open raise with premiums larger, and e.g with PP smaller.
