      Ive probably made a few failures with this hand such as not raising pre, flop slowplay I find reasonable as the only hands that would ever call are sets or other straights. Turn I wasnt sure weather to bet or not, however my real question is what to do on the river? The only real hand I can actually put him on is pocket 4s and bluffs, and since I hadnt seen him in a situation remotely like this I didnt know if he was even capable of bluffing here or not. Its probably possible he had a 4x hand (A4 probably) but would he play it this aggressively?

      Hello esuohdla,

      Preflop: Could easily even raise here. :)

      As played
      Flop: Standard spot to bet, we have to build up the pot.

      As played
      Turn: Bet? Once again missing value.

      AS played
      River: Don't think that I would even 3bet here but rather just Call his raise. With 3betting we wont achieve much. There ain't that many hands which will pay you. Also he wouldn't bluff here either so basically I'd fold to the 4bet. :)

      Best regards.

      he esuohdla,

      also my advice here is:
      bet out in a limped pot as soon as you have anything.
      here you have the stone cold nuts and you need the pot.
      Its a BIG BIG BIG mistake not to bet here!!!
      Of course we can argue if we should raise preflop or not, but the one thing you should be aware of: no slowplay in limped pots!
