      BTN: $6.15 (153.8 bb)
      SB: $1.30 (32.5 bb)
      Hero (BB): $6.19 (154.8 bb)
      MP: $7.22 (180.5 bb)
      CO: $8.34 (208.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K K
      MP raises to $0.12, CO raises to $0.20, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, MP folds, CO calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.34) 9 9 A (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($1.34) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.34, Hero calls $1.34

      River: ($4.02) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $6.40 and is all-in, Hero folds

      $4.02 pot ($0.26 rake)
      Final Board: 9 9 A 4 2
      Hero mucked K K and lost (-$1.94 net)
      CO mucked and won $3.76 ($1.82 net)

      When A came on flop I decided I'll try to play for smaller pot, so I check flop. On turn I check/call because he can easily try to bluff like this. On river I think he is never bluffing like this. Now, when I combine his postflop play and preflop min3bet/call line, I think he is mostly on AA.

      Hi Oly0909,

      Preflop: Since we are 4-betting and we are deep (vs a potential fish) I'd just make it larger.

      Postflop: Since the flop got checked back you should bet the turn for thin value.

      I doubt he would bluff turn for pot size so I'd fold as played.
