      BTN: $25.53 (102.1 bb)
      Hero (SB): $24.75 (99 bb)
      BB: $25 (100 bb)
      CO: $9.52 (38.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K:spade: K:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, BB raises to $2.25, Hero raises to $4.75, BB calls $2.50

      Flop: ($9.50) Q:diamond: 9:club: A:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $4.15, Hero folds

      Results: $9.50 pot ($0.47 rake)
      Final Board: Q:diamond: 9:club: A:club:
      Hero mucked K:spade: K:club: and lost (-$4.75 net)
      BB mucked and won $9.03 ($4.28 net)

      The villain is unknown. I don`t know why i made the 4bet so small. I wanted to do it 5,75$.

      The flop is pretty bad because his range is pretty Ahigh heavy + some PP, maybe KQ. If i bet i turn my hand into a bluff. I excpect him to check behind most of the worst hands (KQ/JJ/TT) and bet his value hands so i decided just to ch/f.

      Hello AchillesBG,

      Yeah, 4bet should be a bit bigger but otherwise folding is of course totally fine. Another option would be to Check/Call once and keep his bluffs in the play if you assume him capable of even betting worse PPs there.

      Best Regards.
