      SB: $23.84 (119.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K K
      UTG raises to $0.80, Hero calls $0.80, CO calls $0.80, BTN calls $0.80, SB calls $0.70, BB raises to $3.80, UTG folds, Hero raises to $20 and is all-in, 4 folds

      $10.80 pot
      Hero mucked K K and won $10.80 ($7 net)


      I would like to hear ur opinion about this situation. So here are some statistics. UTG opens from this position 13.4 (over 1.4k hand sample) so his range should look like 22-AA; ATs+; AJo+; KQo; KJs+; JTs (pretty much standart). Villain sizes 4bb so I don't see point of 3betting here to let others do my job. BB squeezes for ~pot (he does that 17.6% in that position over ~1k hand sample). When original raiser folds, I thing the best option is to resqueeze-shove.
      Btw the only fish at a table is SB.

      Do you think a 3b would have worked more +EV ?

      no, there is like no 4b sizing here that gives u a room to fold, and it just looks like exactly what it is

      if u just backjam here, it looks like some TT-JJ-AQ, even smaller pair spazz

      NH, 3betting in this spot will really strong and kinda turn your hand face up since im assuming your not playing super aggro in mp vs utg. After this squeeze sizing you either shove or call, you can't ever 4bet/fold. I think shoving is the best line here since you can have bluffs in your range, if i have had AA then i like a call way more trying to drag in the fish but even then your risking that villain has AK or QQ and hits a bad flop and gives up.
