      My first question is whether I should have 4bet him preflop. I do have history with the player, about 1k hands but I havent been using the info holdem manager has been providing because i'm not sure how to utilize the info. Thanks all.

      Preflop: You have aggressive history with him? This is late positions, 4betting should be your default play. I would never slowplay KK here unless his fold to 4b is >60%.

      The fact that he 3bets 33 here probably meant that he was going to jam this over your 4bet. As such, you are losing a lot of value by slowplaying preflop when someone intends to 5bet with a wide range vs you.

      River: I would call down and jam when checked to, provided board isn't too terrible.
