      He is unknown, and fish often 3ets min with KK+, so I was not sure if 4bet is ok here when there is no a lot of dead money. So I called IP to keep his possible trash hands, or weaker which he could overplay.

      Hey,

      Calling IP will never be -EV here imo but ofc we can discuss if it's maxEV. If you know this is a strong range, calling and playing like you did is great. If he calls 4bets often, I would probably 4bet to around 12bb.
