villian stats 33/25 AF: infinite but only over 12 hands so it means next to nothing. Basically playing against an unknown that doesn't limp in. I haven't been 3 bet by him yet.

I think i played it fine till he raises the flop. Looking back at the hand i put him on maybe TT, JJ is very plausible because of the 3 bet. I don't really see him having QQ as he would either shove pre-flop or wouldn't raise the flop. KK+ he would shove pre-flop. Possibly AK bluff but I'm blocking that and it seems highly unlikely.

So with TT,JJ i have 10% equity
TT,JJ,QQ i have about 50% equity.

pot odds are 19%.

I think I should have folded but I would like to hear someone else's opinion. I didn't expect aces but anyway….

I guess AQs of spades is also an option which would be a coin flip as well.
against TT, JJ, AQs i have 17.35% but i think its a lot more likely that they have TT/JJ here most of the time

I had a hand yesterday that played about the same way, I called the shove and he shows AQs. he made runner runner flush OTR. Point is, they don't have to have AA / 2pair / sets to play this way.

On topic:
There is just no escaping from KK vs AA in a 4bet pot, 100BB deep.

Some pointers:
your cbet OTF is pretty large and you are totally potcommited after that. If that happens, I believe it better to shove.
You could have made your cbet smaller, more like 50 and might find a way out.. might...

Yeah, straight after the hand I wasn't even annoyed, it happens.
I do like the point on a smaller cbet OTF and will use that from now on!
Thank you
