      MP: $6.42 (128.4 bb)
      CO: $5.73 (114.6 bb)
      BTN: $5 (100 bb)
      SB: $5.67 (113.4 bb)
      BB: $10.83 (216.6 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $10.62 (212.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K K
      Hero raises to $0.15, 4 folds, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.32) 3 9 T (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.22, BB raises to $0.95, Hero raises to $2, BB raises to $6.30, Hero raises to $10.47, BB calls $4.17

      Turn: ($21.26) 4 (2 players)
      River: ($21.26) A (2 players)

      Results:
      $21.26 pot ($0.88 rake)
      Final Board: 3 9 T 4 A
      BB showed 3 3 and won $20.38 ($9.76 net)
      Hero showed K K and lost (-$10.62 net)


      BB looks like weak LAG. 33/23 over 350 hands, raise CBet 23% (13), C/R 10% (20).
      Really hoped to make him fold to my 4-bet, but found it hard to fold to 5-bet so decided to go all-in.

      Hi riks,

      Help me understand your thought process. Why did we want him to fold to our 3 bet?

      He would never fold a better hand, just a worse one.

      And why can't you fold for 8 more dollars which is actually 160 BBs?

      By looking at his big ck raise and shove you are almost always facing a set or 2p.
