      BU: 12 | 9 | 0.5 | 27 | 130 hands
      Seemed to be folding quite a lot of hands to aggression on the flop.

      Known players: (for a description of vp$ip, pfr, ats, folded bb, af, wts, wsd or hands click here)        
      BU:
      $10.10
      Hero:
      $29.61

      0.05/0.10 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K:heart: , A:spade: . MP3 posts a blind of $0.10.
      Hero raises to $0.50, 6 folds, BU raises to $1.50, 2 folds, Hero raises to $4.00, BU calls $2.50.

        I think it would've been better to just call his 3bet here, but I wasn't too thrilled about being OOP either so I ended up 4betting.

      Flop: ($8.25) 3:heart: , 4:spade: , 9:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $6.10.

        Since he seemed to be reasonable enough to be able to lay down a second best hand and he might very well put me on AA or KK after my 4bet, is this ok as played? Or would you have played c/f here? That option seemed really really weak after my 4bet preflop. And I put him on TT-QQ and AK considering how he played it.

      Final Pot: $14.35

      Well played.
      I wonder what's the deal with all the ubertight advice here though :D

      Just one thing : 6.1 $ is suspicious. I noticed that when player contibet crap or bluff, they appear to use stranger number than when they want to extract value as they just bet round numbers then... maybe it's just my observation. I have the same tendency though...

      Also like to fold pre-flop. You´ll play oop and you K outs might not be good. Since he 3-bet UTG opener, his hand range would be JJ+/AK. Since you 4-bet so small he would almost get the odds for calling JJ, QQ. 12/9 seems solid enough and he won´t fold probably QQ+.

      My cbet on the flop was only $6.1 because that was his remaining stack :) .
      And no real input on the flop? That's what I wanted some input on the most you know :O

      Well, if you do play AK, you have to contibet that flop heads-up. You might make him laydown TT-JJ, AK.
      You can't just check fold there after a 4-bet preflop, but maybe I'm wrong here ... I'd suggest 2nd opinions :D

      No I didn't think so either, and as I said in the initial post, he seemed reasonable enough to be able to lay down a 2nd best hand so :) , and since he didn't shove to my 4bet either..

      Given such loose stats (for NL10) and your read, I like how you played the hand.
