      Hello XandreW36,

      Kind of questionable play here, I mean what kind of range do you expect him to call your 4bet here? If he is even so loose, do you really think it's a great idea to CB even such a board while you wont get called anyways from worse.

      Best Regards.

      I'm aware that this was probably not the best play. What other lines do you recommend ? I hate calling preflop as he's going to barrel this kind of boards imo close to 90% and I think our hand is much stronger then just 'set miner' against 'aggro fish'.

      Nah, I wouldn't be calling either preflop. But I would consider Checking the flop and then reevaluating his actions. If he is betting big time then we still can fold cause I doubt that he is bluffing very often in 4bet pots, if he bets small we can still call -> induce him to bluff and reevaluate it on the turn. They rarely will turn their hand into pure bluff and if he has some showdown value he will just check behind and especially with just pure draws.
