      Poker Stars, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $23.50 (47 bb)
      SB: $32.32 (64.6 bb)
      Hero (BB): $58.68 (117.4 bb)
      UTG: $46.50 (93 bb)
      MP: $68.34 (136.7 bb)
      CO: $114.32 (228.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K A
      UTG raises to $1.50, MP folds, CO raises to $4.50, 4 folds

      $3.75 pot
      CO mucked and won $3.75 ($2.25 net)


      UTG: 10 hands 10/10

      CO: unknown

      What is the best option in this situation?

      If CO isn't an unknown, if he has 300 hands, 25/20/10 stats, what is the best?
      If CO isn't 3bet and everybody folds before me after UTG oR, what is the best play? 3bet or just call?

      Theese are some preflop situation what I can't play confidently.

      1. If CO is aggro, 4bet him. He should be iso-3betting the fish with a wide range
      2. If CO is normal and you had AKs or a big PP, then you should flat here so that you can play a 3-way pot with te fish. With AKo I try to avoid playing 3way as much as possible, though flatting AKo wouldn't be too terrible of a play.
      3. If only UTG opens, it would be a really clear 3bet. It's safe to assume that he's a weak player when he doesn't have 100bb since every reg uses auto top-up these days. Vs an unknown reg I think calling is reasonable.
