      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is CO with K :spade: K :heart:

      SB bets $2.74, Hero calls $2.74

      River: ($10.62) Q :diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $4.74, Hero folds

      Preflop: yes, a 4Bet is much better, especially against this guy, since he is not the loosest 3Better once can find, but this is an old hand which I played before you convinced me that calling here preflop is not the greatest option.

      So, as played, I am interested about postflop here:

      Villain seems to be cBetting a lot on the flop and often giving up on the turn. Or at least so far our small sample size has indicated that he has such a tendency. Thus I can't really expect villain to be 2nd barreling with air on this board all that often. A raise on the flop therefore is probably the best option because we can get value from JJ-QQ and we also protect our hand, should villain have a FD or straight draw.

      But as played, river fold should be fine.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Seems like you never 4bet your KK/AA. :D Why not just get it in, especially vs a guy who doesn't even 3bet that much and more likely to go broke in those spots? Get it in than play it this way as you did.

      Best Regards.

      It was an old hand, so I won't just call preflop anymore. Promise! :)

      I was wondering, though, whether you agree with my play postflop despite the mistake preflop.

      as a general rule, if you are the one who keeps calling your opponent's bets on each street you will lose in the long run (especially against tight players like him)

      I am not telling that you shouldn't be calling but rather don't do it every single time which seems to be the case right now. :D
