      i found this spot really tough because i'm not used to actually playing postflop in a 4bet pot. pretty sure my fold was fine, probably even standard but i had trouble doing it.

      my thoughts are he has to have AQ/KQ here if not KK or AA that trapped. i don't think i beat anything in his range but SPR was so low i hated this spot.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K A
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN raises to $0.70, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.80, BTN calls $1.10

      Flop: ($3.75) K 9 T (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.95, BTN calls $1.95

      Turn: ($7.65) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $2.30, Hero folds

      $7.65 pot ($0.34 rake)
      Final Board: K 9 T J
      Hero mucked K A and lost (-$3.75 net)
      BTN mucked and won $7.31 ($3.56 net)

      villain is 55/14 over 29 hands.

      whenever somebody calls a 4bet i tend to assume it's either super tight like JJ/QQ, AK and maybe AQs. but obviously it depends on the players and the dynamic/history etc.

      I think the fourbet size is too small. It may be ideal vs a reg since we want to give ourselves a good price on our bluffs but vs a fish just make it much larger, something like 2.50.

      Postflop line seems fine. Turn card is the sorst on the deck and almost everything beats us now.
