      Villain is 17/15/4.5/7.2/1044 [VPIP/PFR/AF/3b/Hands]
      Additionally, his fold to 4bet is 80%, so this combined with the high 3bet% led me to believe that he's 3betting light a lot. I was going to just call because I have good equity vs. his 3bet range and I have position, but his AF and cbet% are high, 4.5 and 87% respectively, so he'd be betting a lot of flops and I would have to fold a lot of flops that have overcards, and this would just happen too often, so I decide to 4bet, esp. since his fold to 4b% is so high. Unfortunately, he 5bets and I have to give it up since he's not bluffing here.

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is UTG+1 with 8 :spade: 8 :diamond:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.08, 3 folds, SB raises to $0.24, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.70, SB raises to $5.03, 1 fold

      Any thoughts? How could I play it differently? I really didn't like calling because I'd have to fold so often on the flop, and how can we fold to the 3bet when his range is so wide??

      Hello jdnismo,

      The problem is that it's a FR, he is doing the 3bet vs UTG range, plus 7% ain't that big. For that reason I'd rather just use the implied odds for set mining and while even having position. Which in this case would be ~19:1 odds. :) Why not to use them?

      Best regards.
