      In this hand, I'm not to sure how to analyse this. The villain has 16%VPIP, 14%PFR,9% 3bet.

      Using that 3bet range, on the flop equilab puts me on 68% equity. What I'm confused about is his out of position raise. What could that indicate? If he had a Q why not check behind and wait for the cbet (which I'd likely do given it's a nice board)? My thinking was that if I called, I'd still likely push AI on the turn, so I want to get in now. Hence my push. But I have a feeling that a call would have been a better play, and then to reevaluate on the turn.

      Given his action, should I have taken it as a bluff (with check raise being the more profitable action from his position) and acted the way I did, or should I have just called it down and tried for a cheap showdown.

      Hello rudders93,

      Preflop: Min-4betting is just horrible. If you want to 4bet then do it properly, I would do it ~$1,20.

      As played
      Postflop: Why do you raise it here? You would just scare away a lot weaker hands, just Call it and let him maybe even continue bluffs or if he even Checks the turn then ship it.

      Best Regards.
