      iPoker - $0.20 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BB): 197.35 BB
      UTG: 100 BB
      MP: 100 BB
      CO: 75 BB
      BTN: 113.4 BB
      SB: 101.5 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:heart: 2:heart:

      UTG raises to 3 BB, fold, CO calls 3 BB, fold, SB raises to 13 BB, Hero raises to 26 BB, fold, fold, fold

      Hero shows A:heart: 2:heart: ()
      Hero wins 32 BB

      UTG 1k hands, 26/22, opens 22 from UTG. folds 80 to 3bet
      CO 350 25/20
      SB 550 hands 22/18 3bet 10, sqeeze 11.

      Is a 4bet cold against sqeeze too expensive and dangerous?
      UTG opens 22%, and I think he is not too much dangerous. And I did 4bet, because SB sqeezes wide, and he can continue only with AK, QQ+ which is 2.4 %, so I guess it is +EV. Also I expect some players to fold AK, QQ, because 4bet cold looks strong, unless they notice that I 4bet bluff.
      So far I can notice that 4bet cold works very often and I need him to fold less than 40% of time.

      SB 3betted UTG and he is going to be OOP if he sees the flop, which means his 3bet here is as strong as it gets, maybe around 5-8% instead of the 10% you see.

      To be 4betting A2s profitably you will want him to have a wide 3bet% like 12-15% or more so i think this 4bet is bad.

      And players dont fold QQ and AK usually they just call or get it in.

      a cold 4bet looks really strong and gets folds but still you want to pick opponents with a wide 3bet range.
