      3bet BTN vs MP 19% (4/21)
      fold to 4bet 40% (2/5)


      Preflop I thought KQs is too good for 4bet bluffing (and he doesnt really fold to 4bets anyway), and he has a wide range even vs MP, so I called.
      Postflop? Turn is the worst card I could get obviously. He is capable of barreling, my range is capped most of the time, but I didnt have the balls to call down... :)

      Consider his turn bet size I think folding is better. He has mostly Ax hands in his 3-bet range and if you´re willing to call him down, then you can also fold on the turn

      Since you likely don´t get away your hand postflop (unless A comes), I would c/r flop for value and play for stacks. Since board is so dry he can always make some stupid shove with QJ or JTs that he would mostly give up on the turn

      best regards,
