      CO: $50 (100 bb)
      BTN: $34.53 (69.1 bb)
      SB: $50.25 (100.5 bb)
      Hero (BB): $50 (100 bb)
      UTG: $50 (100 bb)
      MP: $20 (40 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K Q
      3 folds, BTN raises to $1, SB folds, Hero raises to $4, BTN calls $3

      Flop: ($8.25) K T 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.41, BTN raises to $8.82, Hero???

      39/17, 43 hands. I think I have a value 3bet against this fishy player, but this flop can hit him well, I think I have to bet, because he is quite unknown, but what's the best play after betting?

      Hey DarkAwi,

      Possibly slightly more important than villain's PFR from BTN is his fold to 3bet. KQ is usually going to always be on the thin side. Might be ok - but if in doubt, flatting will always be profitable and the preferred choice.

      K:sT:c9 is the type of board where if villain flats, he rarely has KQ beat and you should continue firing on blank turns. Vs raise from unknown, best option is to fold here. If you were closing the action I'd snap call, but we also have to worry about turn + river barrels OOP so we are not getting as good a price as it appears on the flop.
