      23/21/426 and 11 resteal.
      Although my hand is not weak against his range, it is trouble hand and OOP.
      So 4bet/fold is better than call 3bet?
      and on flop, his big bet seems for protection without heart.

      on turn he did check back and after flash complete, I bluffed because he don't often have heart.

      Hello Gonchan,

      Preflop: Calling isn't going to solve the profit, make it even worse cause you going to lose tons of money by playing this way. Plus of course we are even OOP.

      As played
      Postflop: His Check-behind range on the turn is mainly X hands which will very often Call you on the river, so kinda wasted your money here. Good example why you shouldn't be playing those type of hands while even turning into bluff on so bad spots.

      Best Regards.
