      MP is unknown and BB has likely a huge hand, he never 3betted in 140 hands. I called to get a set and get value from KK-AA. How's the sizing on the flop? I expected to be called by KK+. How you would have played that hand?

      How much would a pair or a draw call on the flop? I think your size is fine, perhaps they could even call a bigger bet like 3-3.5

      Hey Gnama,

      Preflop decision to set-mine is good here vs a tight 3better. UTG+1 calling also increases your direct pot-odds.

      No need to slowplay the flop. I'd probably raise to $1.30 or so and shove good turns. Your sizing is ok, but you run the risk of blowing your opponents off their hands + also setting up awkward turn stack sizes. I prefer directly shoving to your sizing also.

      Nothing overly wrong with the hand though.
