      Can I make this call preflop? Could I've made a 4bet to get him all-in preflop because I'm OOP?

      Should I have checkraised the flop or am I isolating myself against better? I think he could be playing KQ/AJ here the same way, maybe TT with an OESD too. Thx

      Hello rvvrecke,

      Preflop: Actually I don't really like the Call here unless I know his 3bet range but while I don't then I would rather prefer to fold.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd basically Check/Call it rather than Check/Raise, we basically just isolate us against better hands. Don't really think that he is ever going broke there with a lot weaker hands and only reasonable hand is KQ/TT but while we even don't know his 3bet range then it's hard to say if he is 3bettin with them.

      Best regards.

      Oh yeah sorry, his 3bet range is 4.7 which means he could be 3betting here with KQ/AJ/TT right?

      Nah, not really. Try using equilaab for example and put lets say JJ+, AQ+, then you likely getting ~4% and therefore in this case I'd rather prefer folding. It could easily be that his range is even tighter.
