      I would raise more if I 4bet this... probably $4 or even $5. NH

      The basis to my answer: You want to get called with KK pf.
      By shoving you are cutting almost his entire calling range ->
      You will get called (or raised) by much fewer hands ->
      You are losing value from your hand.

      Conclusion: Just 3bet a normal 3bet size. (make it 3.5$ , the extra 0.5 is for the button raise)
