      just wondering because i just noticed that i never posted a 4bet hand for evaluation :D
      so well, here goes:

      Known players:

      0,03/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K:heart: , K:club:
      Hero raises to $0,18, 2 folds, BU raises to $0,62, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1,73, BU calls $1,11.

      Flop: ($3,54) J:diamond: , 6:diamond: , 2:club: (2 players)
      Hero raises $9 (All-In), BU calls $3,06 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back (All-In).
      no other way to play this?
      and what if A comes, what should i do? c/f all the way? being OOP sucks

      Turn: ($9,66) 4:heart:
      River: ($9,66) 5:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $9,66

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of kings (Kh Kc)
      BU shows (Ah Qc) (never put him on his hand ofcourse) :f_o:

      Hero wins with a pair of kings (Kh Kc)

      Hello Tomaloc,

      One option what I sometimes pick is I just ship it directly preflop while we will be pretty much committed postflop anyways. :D Shipping might even look weaker while we might want to gain maximum fold equity.

      But your play is totally fine as well.

      Even if an Ace comes it's gonna be hard for us to fold. While he could easily hold himself something like TT-QQ and either way I'd Check/Call or just ship it. Depending on the opponent. We can't put him only the Ax while he could easily ship even with TT-QQ. That's also why I sometimes would prefer shipping it preflop. :)

      Best regards.
