      Not much info about villain he is playing 4/4 over 25 hands with 3bet 13%

      Is the 4bet ok ? After I 4bet I can´t fold for the odds right ?

      Hello acceleration123,

      Guess I might even prefer folding while he really has been playing 4/4. And most likely his 3bet stat is from good hands and not rather wider range. As you know yourself as well that in rush they have rather tighter range.

      But as you 4bet it, you need like 34% equity to make it break-even and against this range for example:

             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    38.82%  18.15%  20.68% { AcKd }
      UTG+1  61.18%  40.50%  20.68% { QQ+, AKs, AKo }

      You even getting it, there not much to add, we are going broke. Although that's true that we wont be that often ahead there anyways. And even at some spots I might consider just turning my hand into bluff and folding it.

      Best regards.

      Well he had the 3bet stat 13% .. but I am not sure whether I don´t need bigger sample for that one ... But I basically went for the 4bet because - I am opening from CO, he could easily just try to 3bet me AND I can´t always go for 3bet fold right ? Then I could play 27o 3bet/fold too ...

      Yep, the sample is way too small. And I disagree, with 27o you wont have great equity against any range. :D But with AKo you do very great if they continue. :f_cool:

      Yep, I just wanted to point out that I think I just can´t let AK let in every situation just because somebody 3bets me and he is unknown ... Well, on this limit I doubt there are any regs so probably noone will note me down in a way like - only 4bets/broke KK+, 3bet against him everything, but on the higher limits ppl will def realise this soon or later.
