I don't like post, villain could play QQ/JJ this same way. Does he 3 bet JJ pre though? I think if we are going to b/fold we should just check behind for pot control. Plus we also have backdoor straight and flush draws which makes b/folding really nasty. I think we really only have to worry about Aces here and we block AK hard enough that if an A peels on the turn it probably doesn't change a ton.

re: Poker & $10 NLHE Full Ring: KK - limp & 3bet
Why such the big raise pre? 4x should be okay.
Prefer just checking back with KK with the spade redraw and backdoor straight draw. We can still get 2 streets from QQ/JJ, and getting jammed on sucks. Stacking off is pretty meh, but he might have poorly played QQ/JJ occasionally. I think he has AA pretty often with his really nitty stats though. Also I think he only has few QQ/JJ in his range because I think he'd bet them on the flop to deny overcards their equity. Shipping it in and making a nit fold are both okay imo.

Raise a little smaller preflop. 4bb is standard (3bb + 1bb/limper).
Min-3-bets preflop are somewhat suspicious (and usually polarizing), so I like the flat with KK.
I don't like the flop bet. This is a bad board to bet on, and seeing how he didn't bet himself despite being the preflop aggressor, means he doesn't like it either, or he's trapping us.
