      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BTN): 310.9 BB
      SB: 125.6 BB
      BB: 142.2 BB
      UTG: 192.7 BB
      MP: 153.8 BB
      CO: 90.9 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:diamond: K:heart:

      fold, MP raises to 4 BB, CO raises to 13 BB, Hero calls 13 BB, fold, fold, MP calls 9 BB

      Flop: (40.5 BB, 3 players) 9:heart: 6:heart: 7:spade:
      MP checks, CO checks, Hero bets 19.2 BB, MP calls 19.2 BB, fold

      Turn: (78.9 BB, 2 players) 5:club:
      MP checks, Hero checks

      River: (78.9 BB, 2 players) K:spade:
      MP checks, Hero bets 35 BB, MP calls 35 BB

      Hero shows K:diamond: K:heart: (Three of a Kind, Kings) (Pre 82%, Flop 89%, Turn 91%)
      MP mucks J:heart: J:club: (One Pair, Jacks) (Pre 18%, Flop 11%, Turn 9%)
      Hero wins 141.5 BB

      MP 8 hands, 63VP.
      CO 1.7k hands. 21VP PFR 17. 3bet 7% from MP 5% 3bet.
      Fold to 4bet after 3bet 2/6

      I am not sure if it is better call or 4bet/call?
      With 4bet I show a lot of strength, and he might often fold weaker and push AA.
      Is it a problem if unknown MP calls, should I avoid it with 4bet, especially that we are deep?

      Very tricky, he could have called flop with 8x, but also flush draw which he still calls. Should I bet/fold turn 50%?

      Is my bet/fold ok here? I dont think he has 2 pairs or set here, maybe just missed flush draw, which he folds or bluffs, or TT, JJ, QQ, so I guess there is still value.

      Hi Mlatasrb,

      Preflop: Since CO is shorter (90 BB) why are we not 4-betting him? If MP shoves we can still fold (although it would be hard to find that button).

      Postflop: As played I'd cbet this flop slightly larger into two villains and we can also bet turn for value versus TT-QQ and some FDs (AQhh).

      I'd bet/fold roughly 60% or so.
