      PokerStars - $0.10 NL ZOOM - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $5.10
      Hero (SB): $10.00
      BB: $2.32
      UTG: $5.20
      UTG+1: $2.45
      UTG+2: $9.85
      MP: $1.59
      MP+1: $10.00
      CO: $10.00

      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has K:club: A:club:

      UTG raises to $0.20, UTG+1 calls $0.20, UTG+2 raises to $1.00, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $2.20, fold, fold, fold, UTG+2 raises to $9.85 and is all-in, Hero calls $7.65

      Ok, so I 4bet because this guy is a pretty aggressive 3better (40% at the time) and he knows at least one of those players are weak. I am assuming I am ahead of his range because I think he makes this play with KQo+,KJs+, TT+ . Should I 4 bet bigger? He snap shoved which worried me a bit but I did have 2 blockers to premium hands. When he shoves, I don't think odds will let me fold and I was glad to see I was at least flipping with him. Luckily it ended up in my favour.

      Flop: ($20.20, 2 players) T:heart: 8:club: 4:club:

      Turn: ($20.20, 2 players) T:diamond:

      River: ($20.20, 2 players) 7:club:

      Hero shows K:club: A:club: (Flush, Ace High) (Pre 46%, Flop 54%, Turn 30%)
      UTG+2 shows Q:heart: Q:diamond: (Two Pair, Queens and Tens) (Pre 54%, Flop 46%, Turn 70%)
      Hero wins $19.29

      Is this a move you would have made? Why or why not? Also, what should the sizing be for the 4bet? I'm thinking something more like 2.50-3 is better.

      Hello FlashDavin,

      Doubt that your sample is ever going to be correct here. It's also ZOOM so their ranges are very strong. Rather fold vs the min-raise+3bet while min-raise could easily even be a trap. :)

      Best Regards.
