      SB bets $13, Hero ???





      Villain cold 4bet 18% (3/16) and his aggression got into my head in this hand. I guess.

      If I would've had KK/AA I would be more inclined to flat his 4bet, with QQ I tried to induce him to spew a little (he knows that I am aggressive and would squeeze pretty light in this spot).

      Him flatting preflop scares me a little since I don't think he would do this with his bluffs, and if that's true he can only have KK/AA himself (prolly more AA).

      How would you play here?

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Preflop: Well, your 5bet size is also kinda ridiculous, at least do it 2x than pure min-raise. :P His flatting range goes to pretty wide with such a sizing.

      As played
      Postflop: He could have anything, maybe even total crappy range. But you kinda put yourself into such a spot whilst picking such a sizing preflop. We ain't getting value from worse on the flop, although I wouldn't lay it down either if I assume he is calling it loose preflop. So I'd call the turn and reevaluate the river.

      Best Regards.

      Why not just call the 4bet?

      Calling 4bet would be the worst line you could pick. For what? To let him hit an ace or king? Or not get paid from that hand?
