      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with 9:spade: Q:heart:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 1 fold, BB raises to $0.80, Hero raises to $2.25, BB raises to $4.25, Hero calls $2

      Flop: ($8.55) J:spade: 7:club: T:spade: (2 players)

      Turn: ($8.55) 9:heart: (2 players)

      River: ($8.55) 4:heart: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $8.55
      BB shows Qc Qd
      BB wins $7.98
      (Rake: $0.57)




      Obviously this initial 4 bet was disgusting, (I did it because he was re-stealing 34% of hands) but given that i had made myself 3.3-1 odds, is it a straightforward call? I still think he could have been shoving very wide (something like kj+,A5s+,A10+). If I were going to do this 4 bet with a slightly more valuable hand (QJ suited ie) should i have 4 bet smaller, so not comitting myself?

      Hello Cagey,

      Against him rather just wait for a hand and then according his go-broke range we start to adjust not just straight away go broke with Q9o.

      If he has such a 3bet then min-raise vs him.

      Best Regards.
