      30 hands on villain, has 3bets from the blinds only until now

      I think hisrange for calling my 4bet OOP are mostly PP. Occasionaly some slowplayed AA. (altough he called quickly) And maybe some SC.

      Best line after the flop?

      1. bet flop/ shove turn
      2. bet flop / check turn / shove river
      3. check flop/ bet turn /shove river

      MP: $69.31 (138.6 bb)
      Hero (CO): $50 (100 bb)
      BTN: $60.10 (120.2 bb)
      SB: $89.95 (179.9 bb)
      BB: $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K 9
      MP folds, Hero raises to $1.50, BTN folds, SB raises to $4.50, BB folds, Hero raises to $10.75, SB calls $6.25

      Flop: ($22) K 3 5 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($22) 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $12, SB calls $12

      River: ($46) 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $27.25 and is all-in, SB calls $27.25

      Hey Ashton,

      I'd go with 3.

      Cbetting in a 4bet pot on Kxx is usually quite strong and you get called once by underpairs but they fold to the second bet on the turn or river. I also think it's helpful to have Kx in your range here when you check back QQ/JJ type hands.

      In other words, I'd play exactly like you, expecting other Kx to lead turn extremely often. There still is ofc a consideration of whether your opponent is good enough to realize how good it would be to play KK+ this way postflop after just calling pre but most can't control themselves and become aggressive.
