Am I betting over the top here and does my hand scream AA? Should this pf be a pot size bet? UTG is prob REC, I don't know and UTG+1 is a REG trying to iso the UTG bettor. He seems to be a laggy reg but I am not sure. Anyway he is happy to get it in with KK and so am I, but should I take a softer line in such a spot?

I think I would probably make it a little bit smaller, something like $2-$2.10. The 3bet was small so I don't actually mind going a little bit bigger in all honesty. We don't want to make it so small that we can get loose calls from multiple players.

So, slightly smaller for me.

That is a massive 4b. I think it looks too strong, but it might be fine at 10nl.

I wouldn't go past $1.70 personally.

I mean it's obvious you have KK+ given the positional action but meh, it's ok to be face up at 10nl.

Hi mr mendes,

I agree this 4b sizing is significantly too large. I like about 1.50 here tbh. We want to allow our opponents room to make calling and reraising mistakes, and this sizing makes it hard for them to do that. It's works if we run into KK, because that's the one hand that will make those mistakes regardless. But it's too much pressure to be putting on AQ and TT type hands. If the villains were loose/fishy, or we had expectation to get looser action, then we could to a bit bigger, maybe 1.75, but anything more than this is just unnecessarily large imo.
