      Hi.

      You should just fold here preflop without reads. This is NL10, and the cold 4b is going to be QQ+, and maybe AK almost always. People don't cold 4b bluff light. And that range I just mentioned crushes K9s here really hard, even despite you having great odds.

      Now you flop a king and you are not even thrilled with calling here which is why you should have folded in the first place.

      What about though with the 3bet? Is K9s a good hand to 3bet here?

      I think it's reasonable, K9s may/may not be good enough to call and it's borderline so if you think it's not strong enough to flat here then it is a really good candidate to 3b with since it's at the top of hands that you would otherwise fold.
