[NL2-NL10] Nl2 KK 3bet pot A flop

      Villain is a reg, 21/15 over 100 hands, 33% raise UTG, 33% fold to 3bet (however only 1/3 for sample).

      Although I don't really know villain well I would think his call 3bet range is maybe TT+, AQ/AK. However as he's UTG and I've 3bet him I'm expecting him to be quite strong here.

      Can we still bet/fold this flop? Or is there a better line to take?

      Hey J,

      Check back to induce bluffs is generally way better. His calling range preflop contains usually pairs and A high, some broadways. You block KJ, KQ hands so more AQ, AJ, Axs, type hands in his range. Midpairs don't call much, A high own you and you put in money against that later anyway but by checking you let him put in money with hands like Tx, JJ and complete air more often since he will bet those once you check in many cases.
