      Pre Flop: ($1.65) Hero has 4:heart: 3:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, CO raises to $2.00, Hero raises to $5.50, fold, fold, CO raises to $13.00, fold

      CO wins $12.65


      I had 3betted him a fair amount of times and now he comes over the top. I wonder if he 4bet folds here a lot or if he only has a value range here. We did not have that much dynamic and I had not seen him make any wild plays so I decided to fold. Was really tempted to 5bet bluff here.

      consider your game flow it is likely 4-bet bluff but shoving 43s seems just spewy. You don´t have to 3-bet that hand at the first place and likely he would not 4-bet/fold there too often, but rather widening his 4-bet/calling range to 88+/AQ+

      I think you are right, I should have slowed down on 3betting him every time he raised from the CO. He might have already tightened his range from that position due to me constantly 3betting him.

      pp-s are usually quite good 3-bet/5-bet shoving hands, if you feel taht player might 4-bet bluff you
