      Hi,

      plz comment on my preflop decisions. First of all, is 4betting correct? My idea was that CO could steal very light and BU could 3bet very light against CO's stealing range, so my equity should be fine. 4bet size is larger than standard because i wanted CO to be AI when he calls (and because i'm oop).
      Calling the push i think is OK, i need 1,25/4,08 = 30,6% EQ, so given the range below i must call.

      Board:
      Equity Win Tie
      BU 61.18% 40.50% 20.68% { QQ+, AKs, AKo }
      SB 38.82% 18.15% 20.68% { AhKs }

      Hello HughJazz82,

      Not really. :) Especially your 4b size being too big and after you get 5bet there you will rarely see a lot worse hands. :) I would most likely just let it be preflop.

      Best Regards.
