      Dealt to Hero K:diamond: K:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, CO raises to $0.90, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $4.91 (AI), fold

      Hero shows K:diamond: K:spade:

      Hero wins $1.95

      Hi,

      I wish to ask about the 4 betting size. Assume that hero is against unknown.
      I think 4 betting all in is only isolate us to aces. What do you think? Thanks.

      Hi,

      You can deviate here to a smaller sizing of your choice yes but what would you do with JJ,QQ, AK, AQs?

      Hi Gerv,

      Thank you for your reply. :)

      May be I will fold JJ,AQs and 4bet small with QQ+, AK+.
      I think I will 4bet raise to $1.8 and call 5bet shove.
      How much do you 4bet in this situation?
      I noticed that in MSS, 4bet bluff is not possible.
      Is the above statement true?

      Thanks

      My observations on NL10. 4bet bluff is certainly not possible here. Also 4bet with AK may also be unprofitable, QQ 4bet sometimes u are flipping against AK, but mostly u run into KK+.

      If you 4bet to like $1.5, you can't fold anymore yes mathematically speaking

      I would shove AK & QQ btw because they play so much better when you shove preflop than play postflop OOP if opponent calls for example

      Best regards,

      Gerv, do you 4bet shove KK and AA as you do with AK and QQ?
      Gerv, may I 4bet to like $1.5~1.8 OOP with AK and QQ and shove any Flop as I do with AA and KK profitably?
      Besides that, may I 4bet shove with AK and QQ but raise AA and KK to like $2 since balancing is not important in micro limit?

      Thank you Gerv.

      I dont like raising to $1.5 and shoving any flop with AK because you miss so often. Your equity is the strongest preflop with that holding

      For the rest I think you can do everything you said :)

      Best regards,
