      Hello Tosh5457,

      If CO raises like this then I am pretty sure he would Call you anyways. He is pretty much committed to the pot. :P And so do we. So I guess I'd just ship it preflop.

      But kinda interesting that he went for such a line.

      Best regards.

      So what are some good situation when it's best to slowplay aces preflop, when getting 4bet?

      a) You expect the opponent do light-4bets.

      Your case:
      b) Of course this is also a good spot to do that. But I mean, if he goes to the 4bet, I really doubt it will matter for him if we ship it right preflop or just Call the hand. Plus our ship could also look rather weak than strong.

      c) I expect the opponent behind me to ship as in this case you had CO. But more often I'd rather prefer to have like 2 opponents to act not just one.
