      CO: $2.08 (104 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $2 (100 bb)
      SB: $1.13 (56.5 bb)
      BB: $2.13 (106.5 bb)
      UTG: $2.11 (105.5 bb)
      MP: $3.26 (163 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K Q
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, SB folds, BB raises to $0.18, Hero calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.37) Q 4 K (2 players)
      BB bets $0.27, Hero calls $0.27

      Turn: ($0.91) T (2 players)
      BB bets $0.68, Hero calls $0.68

      River: ($2.27) J (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      $2.27 pot ($0.15 rake)
      Final Board: Q 4 K T J
      Hero mucked K Q and lost (-$1.13 net)
      BB showed T T and won $2.12 ($0.99 net)

      Villain is 15/12/6.9 over 275 hands.

      Can we defend here with KQ?

      As played, is calling or raising on the flop better? I figure with top two here I block a ton of his value hands, so that I would just get him to fold very often if I raised on the flop.

      As played, do we just get it in on the turn/river?

      Hi TinoLaan,

      Preflop: You have a nit 3-betting you. I'm assuming his 3-bet % isn't huge so I would just fold (or 4-bet bluff) but folding is my default. You can defend these hands versus looser players

      Postflop: As played it's hard to let this go and we can probably just ship the turn/
