      Villain was fairly loose/ aggressive around 50 AFq, can't remember exact stats but had a 20% 3bet percentage. Looking back I figure maybe I should have just 4bet pre, purely based on his stats at least I would have some fold equity on his 3bet range.


      Full Tilt - $0.10 NL RUSH (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players

      BB: $10.57
      UTG: $7.31

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has A:heart: K:club:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.30, fold, fold, fold, BB raises to $1.20, Hero calls $0.90

      Flop: ($2.45, 2 players) K:diamond: 4:heart: 6:heart:
      BB bets $2.45, Hero raises to $8.80 and is all-in, BB calls $6.35


      Turn: ($20.05, 2 players) 2:club:

      River: ($20.05, 2 players) 6:club:

      Hello keithbrad,

      How many hands do you have on him? If you have rather bigger sample size then you can even consider to continue, although if not then I might even prefer folding. But yes, I would rather 4bet than Call his raise, unless I know him better and have some kind of reason for the Call.

      Best regards.

      I have about 220 hands on him and the 3 bet percentage was 20% out of 60. Not sure if this counts as a big enough sample size to make my judgement?

      Oh okey. Then it's up to 4bet or Call. So therefore your play likely ain't wrong. The sample is good enough as well. Although sometimes I would even consider just Calling the flop and letting him continue with weaker hands/bluffs.

      Just those situations happen that we face some strong hands in their range. Although he still has a very wider range:

             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    38.58%  35.75%   2.83% { 66+, A2s+, KTs+, QTs+, JTs, T9s, 98s, 87s, 76s, ATo+, KTo+, QTo+, JTo }
      UTG+1  61.42%  58.59%   2.83% { AhKc }

      So we are pretty much dominating him.
