      Dealt to Hero K:club: K:diamond:

      fold, UTG+1 calls $0.50, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $2.50, fold, SB raises to $5.75, fold, UTG+1 calls $5.25, Hero calls $3.25

      FLOP ($17.75) K:heart: T:diamond: A:heart:

      SB bets $8, UTG+1 raises to $8.30 (AI), Hero raises to $19.30, SB raises to $73.30 (AI), Hero calls $41.70 (AI)

      I didn't want to get it in with KK preflop for 130bb vs. someone who hasn't 3bet in 400 hands. I thought of 4betting small to get the fish all-in, but if SB 5bets I'm in a tough spot. Also SB can very easilly call with AA and then I guess I'm usually committed postflop.

      I don't know why I decided SB can now also have AK postflop...there are 3 combos of both AA and AK and I'm not sure how often he is 3betting AK here. If he has AK I'm pretty sure he goes broke since he is a little fishy and has a highish WTSD.

      If you weren't sure that one of them hasn't got AA than your play on the flop should be as same as pre-flop because KK vs AA-nothing changes. I think pre-flop 4bet and fold to a 5bet would be my line of play

      although he hasn´t really 3-bet it doesn´t mean that he should have AA that spot, since he can easily 3-bet there with AK, JJ+ to see where he is
      I would 4-bet pf, since there is dead money in the pot and UTG would get all-in with worse hands and even i board is 224 calling once and then folding to turn blank seems kind of weak
