      Hi ussef,

      with KK here I would prefer to 4-bet preflop, it makes the hand much easier to play both pre and post. Unless we have reads that the villain is very tight (if they will fold AK and QQ to a 4-bet then we absolutely should flat call and keep all the weaker hands in). Without reads though (as given, no reads), I would 4-bet here.

      Post flop play is totally fine imo. The hands that beat us, the one's we're concerned about (if he's got a 2 then wow lol) are AA, QQ, JJ, but his line makes no sense for any of those hands. AA would keep barreling or would check-call. QQ would probably keep barreling, and JJ would barrel or check-raise the turn since the turn card presents both flush and straight draws now. His hand looks a lot like a marginal hand or draw tbh that he thinks we'll just fold all but monsters to a river check-raise. In short, when the hands they are repping make no sense for them to play this way earlier in the hand (in particular on the turn here), it's more likely a bluff and I'd call here too.
