      He 3bets so wide, I usually 4bet, but lately he doesnt give me credit, this is the guy who 6bets versus me and calls 7bet with A8o, where I had QQ in previous post.

      So I cold call versus his wide range and I know he is spewy postflop and plan to play it passive if I hit or take the pot down if there is chance.

      If he is stacking off pre all-day with AX, then I certainly dislike 4bet/6bet here cos he will snap with his Ace highs and pocket pairs which all beat our King high here.

      I suppose calling is acceptable if he is as crazy as you described. His range needs to be >15% here in order to justify cold calling 9BB with KQo. Usually if we face a 3bet we would have already invested an initial 2-3bb so that gives us better pot odds to call here.

      Postflop: I agree with playing passive on the Flop. We don't have more than 1 street of value here, especially with the pot being so huge already.
