      Implementing my new 3x BU raise :) Got min 3bet. The guys 3 bet stats were 25!! The turn bet was an easy call because if he had such a great hand why would he want me to fold and miss out on making money from it. right? With 25% 3bet stats do you think I should have 4bet pre? I think I would have missed out on a lot of value if I had

      A bit of a mindf**k on the turn lol. :f_confused:

      But i agree with your theory for the call.

      Personally I'd 4bet such an opponent, but i suppose it depends on your read.

      How would you react if he jam'd your 4bet?

      Good question. I would have been worried about him having an Ax type hand and hitting a ace somewhere if we got it all in pre. Doing it this way in theory means I could make the most or lose the least amount of money. With AF of 18 I would probably have still just stuck it in pre. I wouldn't fold to this guy with a hand as good as queens

      Hello clandestineAl,

      Preflop: Well, I'd just 4bet against him. :D He is very likely capable of paying us with trying to get it in or another point is that he might easily even Call very light.
      Postflop: Against that kind of maniac there is no way I am going to fold my hand. He ain't shipping this way anyways with nuts, most likely just as a bluff or semi-bluff. Nice hand!

      Against that kind of opponent you could even consider raising the flop to protect your hand.

      Best Regards.
