      That raise 2bb raise seemed wierd so I 3betted, after th 4bet I wanted to fold but than decided to play the hand with a plan to go broke on most flops...
      so the correct action would be to fold after 4bet?

      Depends on reads I think, against a very tight opponent I would fold, against a good player I would probably fold, and against a fish / maniac I would shove. His stack is at 80bb which is a bit lucky for us here.

      Calling preflop with the idea of going broke on flop doesn't seem a great idea to me, as a lot of hands Ax / Kx will call if they have you beat, fold otherwise. so calling down gives them good implied odds. Unless you are capable of folding whenever there is an A or K on the board, which is likely to be quite often.

      The 422 flop is a perfect flop to shove on though.

      Hello Veeziits,

      Well, I don't like that much your idea to Call the 4bet. Either way you are shipping it or just folding. I'd be towards folding since unless he is a maniac you wont see a lot worse hands here.

      Best Regards.
