      Question: When I 4-bet against this smallish stack, should it just be a shove?

      I've recently seen a few players flatting KK after a 4-bet so I do wonder if that A on the flop scares him off. Obviously he didn't have AK or QQ, so that's why I think he has KK.

      Hello,

      Yeah, just ship it preflop.

      On the flop I don't mind checking.

      On the turn I think we could check again, since we do have less than pot size bet and we could put the money in on the river.

      Best,

      Yep, I agree with the shove pre.

      As played, say if I checked again on the turn as you say and he tries to take a small stab at the pot, would you just check shove here? Or just call his turn bet and hope he gets it in by the river?

      If he takes a small stab here on the turn I would be much more willing to call here and check/call the river.

      The thing is that if he has a hand that he's going to call us with on the turn, he is likely to put the money in on the river himself.
