      BU seems reggy, 21/18/9.5/2.0/33/118hands
      3b from BU 2/10
      3b vs UTG 2/20

      Normally just 4b/broke here 100bb deep, but since BU looks like an aggro reg who seems to be 3betting fairly wide (over a small sample) What do you think of flatting vs the 3bet & attacking a lot of flops?

      I think once I 4bet from UTG I get it in vs KK+ almost always so I thought there may be more value flatting.

      Thought about c/raising flop since I rep so little, but decided to try & let him barrel.

      OTR I bet super small to induce or maybe get a hero call from Ax

      BTN: $41.51 (166 bb)
      SB: $54.27 (217.1 bb)
      BB: $7.28 (29.1 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $25 (100 bb)
      MP: $25 (100 bb)
      CO: $25.16 (100.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K K
      Hero raises to $0.75, 2 folds, BTN raises to $2.25, 2 folds, Hero calls $1.50

      Flop: ($4.85) T T 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $3, Hero calls $3

      Turn: ($10.85) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($10.85) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.50, BTN folds

      $10.85 pot ($0.49 rake)
      Final Board: T T 2 4 4
      BTN mucked and lost (-$5.25 net)
      Hero mucked K K and won $10.36 ($5.11 net)

      Preflop: About 4betting pre -> It's fine. I think he would get it in with QQ+/AK if he's aggro. Doesn't make sense at all for him to 3b/fold QQ or AK unless he's bad.

      In order to justify slowplaying here, I would need the villain to have 60%+ bluffs before considering it. If his bluff combos comprise <60% of his total 3b range, then I usually prefer fastplaying my strong hands.

      Postflop: Just check/call and let villain barrel with AK or his other random air. And slowplaying here is good for range protection - He is less able to exploit you by multi-barreling and forcing you to fold 99/88 here in future.
