      Hero (CO): $8.19 (163.8 bb)
      BTN: $5 (100 bb)
      SB: $11.48 (229.6 bb)
      BB: $13.60 (272 bb)
      MP: $5.10 (102 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K Q
      MP folds, Hero raises to $0.15, BTN folds, SB raises to $0.50, BB folds, Hero calls $0.35

      Flop: ($1.05) 2 T 4 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.75, Hero folds

      Results:
      $1.05 pot ($0.04 rake)
      Final Board: 2 T 4
      Hero mucked K Q and lost (-$0.50 net)
      SB mucked and won $1.01 ($0.51 net)


      The guy had 13percent 3 bet statistics so i thought he is on bluff. Should i fold, call or 4 bet? If 4 bet how much?

      If he 3-bets that much, you could try to even 4-bet bluff. Otherwise, your possibilities are to call that 3bet and call flop if you hit.

      On the contrary: does he always cbet when 3-bet pot? Is he cbetting 2streets? If not, even floating could be an option here.

      The safest line, after all, is to check/fold this, if called pre-flop.

      Hi,

      I think raise/call pre-flop is fine- you can always 4-bet bluff, but it is better imo to call pre-flop ip and keep in dominated hands. I would likely raise/fold flop with my backdoor draws and overcards. If he has there overcards then he would likely just b/f and even 88 is not that happy seeing 2.1$ raise on that flop

      best regards,
