      I know the call on the river was super silly, but do you think i should have 4bet/jam it preflop? Would you play it differently (apart from the call on the river)?

      Hello Alficor1,

      Preflop: What's the specific reason for just Calling? What are the opponent stats or do you have any kind of reads on him? I would often just 4bet here unless the opponent is very nitty.

      As played
      Postflop: The villain didn't show any kind of aggression and we went for pot control so likely I would also Call the river unless we are against very passive opponent.

      Best regards.

      MP2 is 22/16 and MP3 16/12.. i have to say i'm still kinda used to nitty FR, so when i see a raise and a reraise and i have queens, i'm actually more tempted to fold then to 4bet.

      You will get used to it, when I 1st started with SH I even didn't like it because there was so much action and stuff involved, more hand readings and stuff but after I played few thousand hands I started to like it, you can always try to mix them up, sometimes play FR, sometimes SH.
