      (Pre 18%, Flop 83.2%, Turn 90.9%)

      UTG wins $14.68

      I thought about calling his 3B on the flop but then what am I going to do on the turn, if a spade hits I have to fold and otherwise I go broke. So I decided to just go all-in now to get protection from his flush draws.

      And I also think that his value range that beats me is tiny in this spot. Obviously 44 and I don't even give him a J in his range, because I think he would have raised most of them. He also played 41/0 over 34 hands, what made me think that he is a fish and might just make a spewy move or something with a pocket below JJ.

      Its difficult spot we dont want to face often:) ) but here is my oppininon

      In hands like that i would not 4 bet FLOP. I ask my self what do i want to achieve...i would like to be called with worse hand and in this case you have to ask yourself what hand your opponent is willing to call with?

      Maybe i would just call flop and and then reavaluate turn.

      Lest wait for judges:) )

      Hello BrinkyBill,

      Preflop: Well, the first cruel mistake is right here, there are 2 limpers and you ain't even taking them into account. Your raise size is horrible here.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, actually it ain't a 3bet but it's just a raise. Most likely myself I'd even be inclined to just Call, since he will have anyways hard time to continue there. Jx is of course possible as well.

      Best Regards.
