      First hand vs uknown, posted dead blind, KK isolation to 4BB, he re-raises.

      Is better line 4bet preflop or ship it in on flop as I did?
      Any other comments?

      Hi!

      Against an unknown yes, I would 4b shove it preflop. Slowplaying KK never ends up nice for me but you can use it against tight and agressive players but against unknowns is better to play it abc.

      once he limp7raises I think 4-betting to 25$ is better than just flatting
      I doubt he is going to limp/raise and then really fold his hand almost never so better to try to get it all-in pf
