      Here I just called because I didn't want to scare him off, the open raiser is 12/8, the other guy is 21/18, after about 100 hands. Their range should be QQ+ AK, maybe JJ so I'm ahead most of the time, that's why I shoved. What do you think? Is raising better preflop?

      Preflop: Not going to say 4betting or cold calling the 3b is better, it really depends. I would personally 4bet AA and try to cooler QQ/KK/AK. With KK I think you look super strong especially given the 3way full ring dynamic in early positions. So I actually like your line here. I wouldn't really call it slowplaying KK here, I would actually classify this as pot control/avoid isolating vs better

      Flop: What are our options here? First is to call and second is to raise. We have the king of diamond so I think we can call here and then call or push the turn ourselves. only real bad card in the deck is an Ace for us.
