      You have quite wide questions here - solutions for those can be found on many articles that provides.

      Anyway, in this case I would call his 3-bet with KK. His range for 3-betting is so tight and he seems like a nit so I'm not sure he even continues with Q's. About 3-betting or 4-betting KK... You should sometimes try to bet worse hands as a bluff, too, to get less respect for your 3-bets and you can take villains' stacks when you actually do have a hand.

      I would just recommend you to try to put the money in preflop with KK.

      Of course, there are some appropriate spots to flat against a 3bet - if opponent is very aggressive postflop and like to bluff a lot, then just calling and playing postflop would be good.
