      So far I had not 4Bet or 3Bet at the table after 51 hands so I suppose that my range here may very well be perceived as tight by my opponent. Villain has on the contrary been loose with his 3Bets and, judging from the stats, is probably a thinking player, although does look too loose.

      With this information, is it justifiable to try a 4Bet bluff? I can't keep folding to his 3Bets afterall and since his range there is wide I should have fold equity. No reason to believe that villain is 5Bet bluffing often, especially since this is NL10.

      Using your table image is perfect, just consider doing that with some more spectaculair hands where u have more chance to win from someone who doenst care about the table images.
      Ill say small pair/suited connectors/marginal suited hands like KJs

      Hello Avatars91,

      If we assume he is 3betting very light then sure, we can shoot a backfire on him and see how he adjusts. But also another option is to wait for decent hands where you also have a decent blocker like Q/K/A but neither ain't wrong with the Jx hand.

      Best Regards.
