      Hero shows K:club: K:heart: (Full House, Kings full of Threes) (Pre 86%, Flop 97%, Turn 100%)
      UTG wins 0 BB
      Hero wins 195.5 BB

      He calls 10% 3bet from EP, 4bets 3/10, opens ep 18%.

      He is aggro postflop, when there is high card he usually 3barrels and his bet sizes are always near pot size. Thats why I call.

      Also is there a need to raise flop or turn? He could have flush, but I dont think so often especially from EP. And even if he has it he has 25% equity and he is betting large so I think he is protecting for me? So this way I protect my calling range, and I dont expect him to call raise and shove on this board except with AK, AA, sets.

      Another question is, is it ok to never 3bet versus tight EP? Because I cant have wide range versus them, they usually have something, and if I 3bet value hands, then he knows which hands exactly I have when I 3bet and which when I call him.
      Could I apply the same for tight MP? Or doesnt need to be even tight, but enough that folds a lot to 3bet (so I can use garbage hands versus him), and is aggro postflop with initiative.

      Preflop: Well his PF tendencies look good for 3betting here but I suppose with your postflop read flatting is fine too.

      Flop: call

      Turn: I would raise here. Just think about your river playability. 11 more spades in the deck, 3 As and 3 Js and 3 9s = ~40%+ of the deck contains action killing cards.

      about never having 3b range vs EP: that's fine, but i probably use such a strategy for those opening 13% or less. Or you could use a pure air 3b strategy (with a very narrow 3b range of 2-3%, while flatting all your monsters).

      Your 3bets are going to get a lot of credit.
