      Ok i just switched from SH so im wondering if in FR there's a spot where you can fold your KK vs UTG nit. The guy was playing 9/8 with 2%3-bet. Imo his 4-bet/broke range here is KK+ since i dont really see a nitty player shoving QQ or AK in this spot.

      But then again folding KK preflop seem so ugly but i've been in more spots like that where they almost never show up with anything but KK+.

      since you think his range is KK+ if he 4-bets then it is easy 3-bet/fold pf :)
      9/8 isn´t the nittiest player but if you really never see them 4-betting with AK or QQ especially 150bb deep then you´re likely against KK or AA and if you hold KK, then mostly they have AA
      So yeah, either call pf and call him down to keep his hand range wider or 3-bet/fold KK even if it seems really too nitty.
      Btw for 100bb I´d likely not get away KK that spot, but for 150bb you´re likely always against AA/KK
