      15/11/ 3bet 4%

      Tricky hand :P Maybe I squeezed a little bit too much, but it's not the most important here. When he pushed pre, I thought he is a weaker hand than me, why I thought so? well, his 3bet is 4%, so I felt like he should 3bet every JJ+ AK+. Even if I give him tight range (too tight for me) like: AJ+, 99+, KQs I have this

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 46.509% 37.07% 09.43% 365658840 93056184.00 { AKo }
      Hand 1: 53.491% 44.06% 09.43% 434515896 93056184.00 { 99+, AJs+, KQs, AKo }

      Coinflip, is it worth to go into such a spots? And do my thinking is correct? ;)

      i'd fold it preflop. you're squeeze is fine, but after he backraises like that i think you are crushed. what worse do you think he is 4betting you with here? and at nl2 nobody is 4betting you light - especially in this situation, and they will be really tight on zoom full ring :)

      people's 4betting range is generally QQ+ imo. NEVER 99+, AJs+, KQs, AKo - unless you have a read. i doubt the sample size you have on this player is anywhere near large enough for the 3bet or 4bet stats to converge, so don't even bother looking at them imo :D

      Hello Friedric,

      Especially it being ZOOM I'd also rather plan to Squeeze/Fold instead going broke. You wont see that often a lot worse hands here and your range is way too wide until we know he is doing that.

      Best Regards.
