      BB showed 6 5 and lost (-$1.14 net)
      Hero mucked K K and won $2.17 ($1.03 net)

      Villain is unknown

      PF: He's so short I decided to get creative and minR and induce some kind of light 3-bet from him. When he 3-bets I did a min 4-bet again.

      Flop: I checked to induce him to bet/bluff and succeeded.

      Question: Thankfully I hit my set, if not I'm gonna have a huge headache if it's an A high board. If it's a 4-bet pot, I will still get my KK in. But let's say it's just a normal open or 3-bet pot, I think I shouldn't fool around min-betting BvB in the case he just flats?

      i probably just shove pre. no point making a small 4bet preflop. i think he hardly folds anything after he raises and is probably committed with a huge part of his range.

      as played given the stack to pot ratio i just check my entire range on the flop and let him spazz bluff. even if u did not have your set on an ace high flop it´s a very easy c-c
