      CO: $55.09 (110.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K K
      UTG raises to $1.25, MP raises to $4.50, 3 folds,

      UTG 1.1k hands
      43/25/6.8%
      open UTG 20%
      fold to 3bet 30%

      MP 16k hands

      What's best, cold call or cold 4bet? The thing is, I don't see myself bluffing a lot in this spot.

      Hey,

      Both actions will seem quite strong but whenyou flat, you let either of them ship it in with AK, QQ while if you cold 4bet I think those hands can fold and you end up stacking vs KK+ which is not what you want when you have KK. :)

      Sick sizing... Well.. Calling makes the most sense.. Very often I say ship because he is commited and you see a fold. Call flop and call turn imo.. I would not find a fold here ever.

      *blarf*

      Time to bring out some tools..


      Board: T:club: 7:club: 3:diamond:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    70.10%  70.10%   0.00% { TT, 77, AcQc, AcJc, 9c8c }
      MP3    14.32%  13.69%   0.63% { QQ+, AcQc, AcJc }
      BB     15.58%  14.95%   0.63% { KhKc }



      Let me know if I missed something.. looks like a fold to me but notice that we need about 25% only to call so you don't need them to have loads of worse hands in their range.

      I think it's more like this, but still a fold...



      Board: T:club: 7:club: 3:diamond:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    18.66%  18.17%   0.49% { KhKc }
      MP3    20.69%  20.20%   0.49% { TT+, AcQc, AcJc }
      CO     60.65%  60.65%   0.01% { TT, 77, 33, AcQc, AcJc, QcJc, Ac9c, 9c8s }



      Bleh, I called, UTG had QcJc and MP AA.

      Yeah, not a huge difference between them because what matters most is our equity against both of them, we don't have a big enough of a side pot to warrant more breaking down of them so we definitely have <20% which ofc is bad..
