      Villain : 33/27/3 steal BU 100%(3) 35 hands small sample

      I think i messed a little this hand.I called his 4bet cause we were deep and didn't feel comfortable to shove QQ.And what about postflop?
      I thought of c/c the flop and re-evaluating the turn or bet the turn if he checks behind the flop.The turn is one of the worst cards for me so decided to give up, don't know why i called the river.

      Despite only 35 hands played villain looks really loose. I agree with you about not going crazy with QQ for 140bb. However you should protect your hand.

      If you feel uncomfortable playing oop calling 4bet is ok I guess (I'm more inclined to 5betting him though).

      This flop however you should value bet for sure - at least 2/3 pot I would bet even more because I would like to end hand here since we're oop.

      How played: I don't think you have any other option than c/f river. I sometimes call villain to get an information especially if he gives me nice price.

      Hello dudiloiu,

      Preflop: Yes, likely Calling should be somewhat better for the reason that we are that deep. He will anyways have hard time to continue with worse and we would be in ugly shape if he decides to raise again and even shove.
      Postflop: As you described I totally understand your play, although I guess I'd as well Call the river for the given odds since we just played that passively and sometimes it might even make him to bluff with any kind of hand he went for 4bet. Since often times I expect them to bet the turn as well with Kx, although it could happen time to time that they are trying to just get Called from worse PPs, that's why they picked such a line. Therefore hard to say how we should react to such a line while we don't know the opponent, shouldn't be that big mistake either on river if you Call.

      Best regards.
