      UTG ($1.04) 26bb
      CO ($6.21) 155bb
      BTN ($4.35) 109bb
      HERO (SB) ($4.34) 109bb
      BB ($2.10) 53bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 5 players) HERO is SB A:heart: K:diamond:
      1 fold, CO raises to $0.24, BTN calls $0.24, HERO raises to $1.04, 1 fold, CO raises to $1.88, BTN folds, HERO?

      Villain is 47/18, 120h

      6x is not his standard open-raise sizing, in this spot his range might be something like TT+, AQ+

      My plan generally is to go broke here - villain is definitely stacking off lighter in squeezed pot. But his 4-bet size confuses me. I already invested 1/4 of my stack, but considering his sizing, looks like he`s got KK+.

      Hey dienaszaglis,

      I agree he's probably pretty strong with his 6x open. This can easily mean KK/AA only for some players. I think squeezing + allin is too loose in this spot.
      Folding preflop is perfectly legitimate in these spots where players randomly make it 6x. Flat calling and hoping to play a smaller pot multiway is ok also.

      After you've already raised, it depends on what you think his range is. If his range is KK+ you should fold. If his range is KK+/AK or wider you should probably just get the money in.
