      Raise , Re raise from 2 Nits, I dont think my Queens are good here most of the time? i mean im against atleast AK+ JJ+ all the time here especially since im on SB, i mean if i 4bet/Fold vs 2 nits I dont know its like giving them free money, if i call for set value im first to act and will be raising vs 2 at every street so I will have a very hard and unprofitable decision unless I hit my set, so i guess its fold pre since i have only 5 cents invested in a Raise-Re raise pot other line would be to 4Bet Squeeze and fold to a shove. But I personally prefer taking the fold pre route vs these NITS in the long run im losing every time.

      If you 4 bet can you really fold to a shove?

      The equity you will need to profitably call will be pretty low around 30%, if you include AK in their range and maybe JJ you certainly have the odds. Only bad idea if its always KK & AA only they are doing this with against these you only have 20% equity.

      Not saying you should 4 bet here, I agree with your thoughts but I am saying that 4 bet / fold is usually a bad line. Typically 4 bet / broke should be the preferred line.

      Hello Heave112,

      Seems to be pretty standard and I wouldn't change much in the play. At the best for you it might be a coinflip anyways. I'd rather fold my hand. Sometimes it's just safer to avoid the flips and fold your hand. You can't 4bet here anyways since it would be too strong and their continue range will be pretty strong.

      Best Regards.
