      I like defending suited cards like this vs 3bet from BU, but I am not sure if it is bad, since my hand is often dominated? I never 4bet bluff, since it almost never works (at least for me, they shove very light), so I adapt by 4bet/shoving TT+, AK.

      I am not sure if this spot is ok to float? K high is a scare card for me and it is in his range, but he doesnt have it each time, and I could steal the pot on turn, also I have backdoor fd, and OESD.
      When I hit T on turn, is it ok to float one more time and give up river?

      Hi,

      if you ever raise KQ that flop, then I think 22bb raise is also fine on the flop. Problem just calling is that they would put you too often middle pps and likely bet again turn very often, but if you plan on shoving J, clubs and float again if you hit Q or T then I don´t mind your flop call.

      Preflop call should be standard if player likes to 3bet BU opens.

      best regards,
