      Ok, so all very standard preflop. I'm obviously ready to ship it when he just calls my 4-bet, which I made a little smaller to induce some spazz from villain. The flop is pretty ugly and I really wasn't too sure what the optimal play would be here. Looking back it looks like a bet/fold spot and, to be honest, except for JJ-AA with a diamond, AKdd etc, his preflop range should not necessarily have smashed this board too much? The turn's an obvious fold but can I take a stab on the flop? What should my line be here overall with no reads (it was speed poker)? Let me know what you think.
