      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: While our hand has some weak blockers I prefer to 4-bet bluff hands with A or K blockers (as they block more of his potential value range).

      I also think that our 4-bet bluff is too small and will potentially induce more calls. We are only making it 20 BB here and he 3-bet to 10 BB. I would prefer to make it closer to 23-24 BB.

      As played I don't mind your small cbet on the K high board. We risk $4 to win $10 so it only needs to work 29% or so.
