      Hi Houlajk,

      Preflop: we can call this IP when we face looser opens. Since villain opens UTG I think it's less profitable but since we are IP the call is still ok.

      3-beting as a bluff would be better though as we have blockers and position.

      calling in position with suited kings is good because they play well multiway but calling out of position is a bad idea.

      usually we dont hit and if we are in position we can take the pot away. however if we are out of position and miss usually the one in position bets at some point in time and we have to give up the pot. so we either fold or 3bet as a bluff with KJs

      And I want to ask more on this issue: say we have the fish in the hand but it's gonna be multiway, say 2 or more opponents. We know that high cards decrease in value when playing vs many opponents and we have reverse implieds but with connectedness and suitedness + position we can rely on good implieds, right?

      And more. We don't call KQs (or do we indeed?) after UTG raise because of reverse implieds from high cards are more dangerous than potential implieds from suited+connected and positional advantage?

      How to decide what is better?
