      PartyGaming - $0.25 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 100 BB
      SB: 110.8 BB
      Hero (BB): 323.84 BB
      UTG: 140.24 BB
      MP: 9.64 BB
      CO: 138.24 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has A:club: A:diamond:

      UTG raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 10 BB, UTG calls 7 BB

      Flop: (20.4 BB, 2 players) 3:heart: Q:heart: K:club:
      Hero bets 8 BB, UTG calls 8 BB

      Turn: (36.4 BB, 2 players) 4:heart:
      Hero bets 18 BB, UTG calls 18 BB

      River: (72.4 BB, 2 players) 9:spade:
      Hero bets 35 BB, UTG calls 35 BB

      200 hands, VPiP 33, PFR 23, fold to 3bet 44%. call cbet 2/5 raise 2/5 fold 1/5 in 3bet pot

      I think I played it bad, I was betting flop smaller than usuall because I waned to induce bluff raise, but once he calls he calls with Kx, Aq, fd, and I was not sure if he has KQ.

      Turn and river bet larger?

      Woah.. You 3bet UTG, board comes KQ3 and you want to induce bluffs? From what? What is UTG's calling range there vs your 3bet this deep? Does UTG 4bet KK?

      Your line here will always be very opponent dependent. You can bet or check this flop.

      Pros of betting:
      - value from Qx, Kx, maybe JJ doesn't believe one street
      - you realize your equity/make him fold his more often

      Cons of betting:
      - always a bet/fold because of how your ranges look
      - big pot and plenty of bad cards OOP

      Pros of checking:
      - value from bluffs
      - smaller pot for later streets decisions OOP vs a wider range

      Cons of checking:
      - inaccurate range for opponent (hard to tell exact bluffing frequencies)
      - miss value vs Qx and weak Kx sometimes.

      Almost nobody 4bets KK, even AA they slowplay. I end up all in in average once in a week in partypoker and it is mostly against AA. In poker770 I was going all in every day 10 times, simliary in pokerstars.

      Why is UTG different from MP or CO if the guy is fish (33VPiP, fold to 3bet 44% which means his range is wide, and he called here KT)?

      You didn't post positional stats. Those also matter.. Fold to 3bet goes along with Raise First In, it does nothing by itself.

      Anyway, if you have the read that he is a fish, what he does best vs you is call down to light. Just value bet big and go from there. FPS vs fish that do random stuff just gets you into guessing games imo, when your value is quite clear and clean here vs that type of player.
