      His raise is so small preflop I decide to 3-bet from the button because I dont want the 2 limpers coming along for the ride. He then makes a pretty decent 4-bet and I really don't think i'm beating anything in his 4-bet range. I think he's flatting most PP that I'm flipping with so decide to fold. Not sure if this is a reasonable spot to fold since I see so many posts along the lines of "why 3-bet if you're going to fold to a 4-bet?"

      Hi Meemawuk!

      His stats look pretty solid TAGish. In this case his range is always QQ+, AK .

      Your equity with AK is 38.8% to this range.

      As you have invested $0.9 so far, I do not see reason why to continue, you are either flipping/splitting with QQ/AK, or you are big dog to AA/KK.

      Flatting is not a good option, as POT on flop would be $5 with about $7.5 behind. You will as well sometimes loose when you hit or fail to extract value from QQ that will be scared of A/K on flop.

      Good play
