      given its 6 handed and u have 4 ppl left behind to act, isnt it better to 3b pre? :f_p:

      oh and remove the hand cause its hard to stay objective if you see the results before you egen get to think about the hand =) i cant say much now that I already know what he has :P

      @vonki: didn't notice that only 6 were left. don't really like 3betting with KK vs UTG. i used to remove the 'answers' but got lazy and since i trusted that the opinions given here were professional even with the answres given:P

      i think i should have folded here. given the dynamics of FR/developments of board, i'm "bluff catching nothing"/villian wont value check raise river TPTK/ villian is usually incapable of making his second pair into a bluff since my river bet size indicates a lot of strength .
      no doubt there are more combos of AQ/KQ/JQ( vs 55/77/22/QQ) that i try to keep in his range by flatting, i believe i'm often crushed in this river spot.

      depends on my image but I think 3-bet is likely better in deep stacks.
      he isn´t really c/r river for value with AQ, then I also doubt he is doing that with AA, so that leaves 5x+ or busted draw. It just seems very strong, but I would still make the call, since no player would never put you on KK and I think you would very often check behind yourself Qx and weaker hands. So he can´t really expect you to bet too often, thatś why I think he would also rather go to value his 5x+ hands
      Also if you raise that board quite often with bluffs or draws it is good to balance your raise with KK. if he has AQ you´re likely going to stack him
