      Full Tilt - $0.05 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $3.15
      SB: $8.40
      BB: $13.93
      UTG: $6.84
      Hero (MP): $7.57
      CO: $17.96

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.07) Hero has K:club: K:diamond:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.15, fold, fold, fold, BB raises to $0.45, Hero calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.92, 2 players) A:diamond: 4:club: 6:club:
      BB bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      Turn: ($1.92, 2 players) 3:diamond:
      BB bets $1.10, fold

      BB wins $1.80

      Am I suppose to 4bet all the time vs the BB, and is it standard to call the flop, and re-evaluate during the turn? Will I be saving money in the long run just folding my KK on an Axx flop vs 3bets

      Hi woodzzi,

      Moved this to BSS hand evaluations for you, it seems more appropriate there to me. :)

      Hi Woodzzi,

      Preflop: Unless you have a good reason for calling a 3-bet (like villain being able to bluff off stacks if you just call) we should 4-bet for pure value even 150 BB deep,

      Postflop: AS played I don't mind calling one street as a bluffcatcher but we have to fold to further action at this limit.

      So your play here is fine.
