      Villain is 20/17/4.1 v/p/af (282 hands)
      He folds to steal only 64% of time. In the SB vs steal he has 3Bet 3/10 times, and called 3/10 times.
      Overall my own fold to resteal this month is 64%, and I steal from btn 53%
      and overall steal success is 58% (all my stats from just this month)

      Party, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 7 Players

      BB: $1.91 (95.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $2.03 (101.5 bb)
      CO: $0.62 (31 bb)
      MP1: $2.28 (114 bb)
      SB: $1.17 (58.5 bb)
      MP3: $2 (100 bb)
      MP2: $0.44 (22 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K A
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, SB raises to $0.20, BB folds, Hero raises to $2.03 and is all-in, SB folds

      Results: $0.42 pot
      Hero mucked K A and won $0.42 ($0.22 net)

      At the time, I could only see the 64% fold to steal, which is quite low for this limit, and his aggression which is fairly high.

      So my questions about this hand:
      1. Is this a proper 4Bet shove?
      2. With a hand this strong vs his apparent resteal range, is it better to call, see the flop since I have position?

      Hi,

      you can shove and expect for example AK or JJ to fold, but I think 4-betting general is better option, since then he can call with dominated Ax hands and you can also consider sometimes 4-bet bluffing with Ax hands or going for value AA/KK.

      2. With a hand this strong vs his apparent resteal range, is it better to call, see the flop since I have position?
      - against 20/17 prefer 4-betting, since you miss too often postflop, with AA-TT or AQ you can call and play postflop, also you can 4-bet AA-QQ, but sometimes slowplaying should also be fine and then raising most flops.

      best regards,

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      There is no other way to play it, I mean we are against $1,17. :D We can't really min-raise or whatsoever. He is committed anyways, if he has a hand he is going to Call and if he doesn't he wont. He will never fold AK/JJ and of course not AJ/AQ or whatever went for 3bet. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
