Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Hi everyone,

The villian here in the bb has stats of 21/16 3bet% of 7 and hadnt 4bet over 43 hands,i also had a note that they 3bet Vs steals with KQ.

This hands a short one and i just wanted to pose the question would you ever fold KK here? given that stacks are sooo deep (387bbs)also the cutoff folded

This is one of the occasions where I can fold KK pre-flop. There is certainly a fair chance that this villain is doing this with a few worse hands, but he also has aces sometimes, and I'm not prepared to call off nearly 4 buy-ins to find out the bad news.
Reads/notes would help (if I've seen him make a massive overjam with QQ, AK or worse, I'm calling) but without reads I'm folding here and actually laughing at villain's ridiculous play.

You can exploit this player by folding your kings when it seems he has aces, but when the situation is reversed and he has KK and you have AA, you can make a a normal 4-bet for value, and he'll get it in drawing slim. In short, you won't pay him off when he has aces, but he will always pay you off when you have them. Easy game.
