      today I would play 4bet broke pre flop

      as played fold turn seems week because we under rep our hand, I don't really know what is the best play here,

      bet turn? he doesn't have weaker AX because he bets them for protection on flop

      call turn fold river? seems reasonable..

      watcha think?

      Villain has halfstack, and seems aggro with 3bets, so I agree that 4bet/broke would be fine here.

      As played turn/river is tough. As you wrote with Ax he should cbet flop, and he is passive on turn/river, so his play looks a lot like Kx (checkbehind flop for potcontrol, bet turn/river for value). If we fold, then it should be on the turn (although I dont know if I would be able to do that... :) )

      Hello tolari,

      Preflop: 4bet it and go broke rather than Call and play OOP vs his stack.

      As played
      Postflop: With passiveness on turn & river makes me even wonder if we have anything beat. :D But with his 3bet frequency I guess it's going to be difficult to lay down cause he might even have worse Ax hands which Check behind the flop sometimes + the given stack size.

      Best Regards.
