      2 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, SB folds, BB raises to $4.50, Hero calls $3

      Flop: ($9.25) 6 4 2 (2 players)
      BB bets $5.50, Hero calls $5.50

      Turn: ($20.25) 6 (2 players)
      BB bets $13.75, Hero folds

      Anon table.

      BB seemed like an aggro reg (26/20).
      The good old classic again... :D I didnt have the heart to fold JJ, but against unknown it's pretty hard to play postflop. Is preflop 4bet a good option? 4bet/call or 4bet/broke?
      On the turn I can play the guessing game... Should I call here, and ch/fold river, as it's unlikely that he would 3barrel air with a bluffpush?

      Is 9bb his standard 3b?

      I'm not folding, you are at top of your range, he could have ton of draws.
      If I believe he won't bluff river I would jam, otherwise I think it's more +ev (but harder to play otr) call and probable call most rivers.

      Against an aggro reg I think 4bet/call pre is fine.
      As played you should decide what to to based on how wide is he 3betting and how much is he barreling. Aggro reg can easily barrel some FD's and Ax gtshts and more random crap. I think whe wider his 3bet range is more likely shoving turn is ok.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Preflop: If he seemed to be agro reg and even 3betting a lot then why not just 4bet/get it in? Vs unknown of course calling is also fine here.

      As played
      Postflop: Though I don't really see any point by floating the flop and give up the turn, whilst he can easily have the plan to 2nd barrel it very often. If calling the flop then should also plan to call the turn and reevaluate the river.

      Best Regards.
