      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, BB raises to $0.40, Hero folds

      Doubt, that my note makes big/any difference.

      My options:

      1. 4-bet bluff
      I assume OPP will fold half of his 3-bet range and will go broke(5bet) with:
      JJ+,AQs+,AQo+

      Conclusion, 4-bet bluffing almost never works(maybe except min-4bet vs loose 3-bettors(10%+ ??)) - very -EV play. Risk/reward ratio sucks. 50% of the time I would gain 0,52$, other half I loose my 4bet size$.
      I learned, that:

      4-bet with hands that you are willing to go broke with.
      In this case my range is TT+, AQo+(56% EQ vs OPP range)

      2. call
      OOP without initiative in 3-bet pot sucks. It is VERY hard to get any money, without hitting the 9.

      3. fold
      By folding I`m making the smallest possible mistake.
