      Poker Stars, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players


      SB: $25.10 (100.4 bb) 31/27/6.0/30.0/20/27 (3-Bet from SB 25%(4))
      BB: $27.23 (108.9 bb)
      UTG: $30.24 (121 bb)
      MP: $25.35 (101.4 bb)
      CO: $25 (100 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $25.33 (101.3 bb) 35/30/2.0/16.7/25/24

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K A
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, SB raises to $2.25, BB folds, Hero raises to $7, SB raises to $25.10 and is all-in, Hero calls $18.10

      I too have a loose image on this table and he could definitely be 3-Betting quite loosely against me or even shoving quite loosely. Is a call still justified?

      Flop: ($50.45) 2 4 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      Turn: ($50.45) 2 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($50.45) 5 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      If you go for 4bet in this spot we are never folding here. :P Especially vs such a guy. I am also going broke vs such a high 3bet. Although of course it also depends on the dynamics a bit.

      Also fix your 4bet size which should be 2,5x not so big. :)

      Best Regards.
