      BU's 3bet is 6.7 over 250 hands. 13 VPIP 11 PFR 3.8 AF 100% Cbet (6/6 in normal pots, 3/3 in 3bet pots). Fold to 4bet - 1/1 (100%)

      I call preflop because he'd most likely fold most of his range he's raising here with to my 4bet.
      On flop I go for check/raise because I know he's cbetting there like 95% of the time and if I donk here he might fold many hands he'd cbet with.

      If I c/r here even he doesn't hit I get 1 cbet from him.

      Would you agree with my play here?

      Hey lmbr1,

      As discussed in the coaching, I think against a tight 3better, a 4bet is going to work more often than against someone who is 3betting way too loose. Therefore you yield more EV here by 4betting

      Also if you call here, you might get 3way and still have some room to make costly mistakes as stacks are not that shallow in relationship to the pot

      As played, we have to check/shove here but even against JJ+,AQs, we are barely ahead (55% equity) but it is still sufficient

      Best regards,
      Gerv
