      Preflop: Hero is MP with Q K
      Hero raises to $0.75, CO raises to $1.80 and is all-in, BTN calls $1.80, 2 folds, Hero calls $1.05

      Flop: ($6) Q K 9 (3 players, 1 is all-in)
      Hero bets $4, BTN calls $4

      $37 pot ($2.40 rake)
      Final Board: Q K 9 4 8
      Hero showed Q K and won $0.00 (-$17.35 net)
      CO showed 7 7 and won $5.61 ($3.76 net)
      BTN showed 5 6 and won $28.99 ($11.64 net)

      Vilain is a fish 48/29 1,1 AF on 205 hand. I decide to not 4bet preflop. Maybe I should. On the flop I bet ( should have bet a little larger ). On the turn I m commit and think I have to shove to be called by a lot of less good hand than mine.

      If we knew that BTN's range was so wide I would probably 4bet preflop. But I don't think we know that so flatting is probably better. KQ is not doing so well vs the average 3b cold calling range. I would need BTN to be way looser than he is here (VPIP 60%+) before I would consider 4betting preflop with KQo for value.

      I think the postflop play is fine.
