      Felt it was a good spot for a 4-bet as it would likely cause cut-off limper to fold & increase dead money in the pot.

      Better to push even bigger to maximise the cut-offs fold equity, or is the play fine?

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:club: , K:spade:
      5 folds, CO calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.09, SB folds, BB raises to $0.16, CO calls $0.14, Hero raises to $0.65, BB calls $0.24 (All-In), CO folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Flop: ($0.97) 6:heart: , 6:spade: , 2:spade:
      Turn: ($0.97) 5:heart:
      River: ($0.97) A:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $0.97

      Results follow (highlight to see):

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Against BB stack there is of course a go-broke spot. No other way to play the hand. Most likely CO will have a very wide range himself as well so I wouldn't be scared of him.

      Best regards.
