      I would open 3bb from CO as standard here, 2,5bb attracts too many hands to outplay us post-flop.

      With your short-stack I think 4-bet-shove is fine, with full stack I'd 4-bet 2,5x the 3bet and call shoves or jam (m)any flop.

      Hey Cuvash,

      4betting with KK is going to be fine. The only time you'd consider flatting is if villain had a very wide 3betting range. With no info on villain I'd just 4bet.

      I'd probably make it $0.38 or so in an attempt to keep villains range wider, but I don't think it makes a huge difference.

      As for your open-raise, you can probably make it larger, even 4x. Although I don't mind smaller raises in general if you are not going to play with a full stack.
