      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:

      $59.10
      MP2:
      $52.95
      MP3:

      SB (Hero):
      $52.05
      BB:
      $50.00
      UTG2:
      $54.40


      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, Q.
      6 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, BB raises to $4.50, Hero raises to $11.25, BB raises to $50.50, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $10.5.


      Villain is a reg. Fold to a steal 89%, and 3bets 7.5
      Thing is he knows I steal about 40% from SB, no doubt he's restealing with a wider range.

      4-bet blinds vs blind is fine, but don´t fold to shove
      He would sometimes shove there wider than AQ, smt like AJS, ATs putting you on 4-bet bluff and he would also likely get all-in 88+

      Kaitz20, you talks about +88, ATs, AJs+ range of villain by your poker experience or you concludes from his stats?

      basically consider general game flow at 6-max tables against aggressive 3-bettors.
      It may be different at FR tables, but blind vs blind should generally be the same. Either way you shouldn´t turn as strong hand as AQ into bluff and if you´re 4-betting for value you should also call shove.

      Hello vmarqui,

      I'd rather say that it's a very close spot between to 4bet/Fold or either 4bet/Broke. No way there is a mistake to 4bet/Fold while against JJ+/AK we just can't Call profitable. And as well we still can turn AQo into bluff, even if you think that AQo ain't a weak hand.

      Against some 77+, AJs+, AQo+ we can make the Call, but does he really shove there that loose? So therefore if we knew that he is capable of bluff-shoving there then it's a profitable Call and if rather not then folding is better.

      And as well, what's his preflop stats for example, VPIP/PFR then according to that we can consider as well guess his playing style. But more often I expect to be against either a nitty player or just some basic 14/10 stats.

      Best regards.
