      Hi, All villains unknown.

      Raise/broke vs the fish too ambitious?
      I didn't like flatting too much here with two unknowns to act.
      I think BB definitely has a lot of draws, but also sets & two pairs.
      If he were full stacked I think I would just flat with my overpair & BDFD & re-evaluate turn.

      Since I plan to go broke vs BB I think my sizing should be closer to $7, then after CO calls my raise I got a bit lost.

      Board: 3s9c7c
      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 33.02% 33.02% 0.00% { KsKc }
      MP3 66.98% 66.98% 0.00% { 99, 77, 33, T8s, 97s, AcJc, QcJc, AcTc }

      Not doing super well against this range, but depending on how fishy he is, we can probably add more draws & maybe some over pairs.
      Not sure how to factor in CO, but I don't think he flats the raise with sets often, so I think I'm doing ok vs him.


      BTN: $39.63 (158.5 bb)
      SB: $20.22 (80.9 bb)
      BB: $15.31 (61.2 bb)
      UTG: $13.25 (53 bb)
      Hero (MP): $31.45 (125.8 bb)
      CO: $33.01 (132 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K K
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.75, CO calls $0.75, BTN calls $0.75, SB folds, BB calls $0.50

      Flop: ($3.10) 7 9 3 (4 players)
      BB bets $1.75, Hero raises to $5, CO calls $5, BTN folds, BB raises to $14.56 and is all-in, Hero raises to $30.70 and is all-in, CO folds

      Turn: ($37.22) 2 (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($37.22) 7 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Results:
      $37.22 pot ($1.67 rake)
      Final Board: 7 9 3 2 7
      BTN mucked and lost (-$0.75 net)
      BB showed A 2 and lost (-$15.31 net)
      Hero showed K K and won $35.55 ($20.24 net)
      CO mucked and lost (-$5.75 net)

      Hi.

      I don't think you should raise the Flop. And I think the Flop spot was extremely tough, you pretty much got the best case scenario happening for you. I think CO is often strong here when he cold calls your Flop raise.

      If this were Headsup or maybe 3way, I think the raise would certainly be more reasonable. With 2 other players left to act behind you I think it will get really tough. And relatively speaking I think KK isn't that strong here given the 4way dynamic. All 3 of them could have pocketpairs here flopping a set.

      I also disagree with the larger raise. For example if someone jams behind you, you can fold and lose less money. And if the turn blanks out you can then jack up the pot (like this particular 2s turn which is a good blank, you can raise on the Turn)
