      Villain: 25/14/2 - 691h; fold to 3bet 85%, 4bet 4%
      Notes on villain: always raises after posting/double-posting his blinds and 4betted twice when faced 3b.
      I 3bet for steal here and when villain took some time and 4bet me, I was almost ready to fold, but then I got this stupid itchy feeling that maybe he is overbluffing me. I took some time to think, grabbed my balls from the floor and pressed "allin". The villain took his entire timebank to think and on the very last second pressed "call". I sure feel stupid right now, but at least I am not making this mistake on NL10 again. :f_mad:

      Hi faronel,

      I play 10nl RF like yourself. One thing I have never done is 5bet bluff someone. Not because I haven't had the opportunity, but because I think its just a unprofitable play to make (at 10nl). Sure there are some OK players who may lay hands down when they are 5bet, however, on the whole if someone is 4betting, I think they are very inclined to call a 5bet/shove.

      Also, with a 4% 4bet percentage, that is quite standard right? That to me wouldn't suggested he 4bets light frequently?

      Edit: Also he is folding to a lot to 3bets. I think 3bet bluffing is ok as he folds a lot. But when he doesn't give up you know its something pretty good and when he decided to put more money in rather than just call, I would be pretty worried.

      I really doubt he would open 5x, then put in 42bb and after that fold to shove. Against 5bb raise I would just folded J7s or if that is his standard raise then I don´t mind your 3-bet squeeze (although if he likes to 4-bet back I would rather wait real hand). After his 4-bet you should have 0% fold equity so only correct move should be fold

      NL 10 I also have never 5-bet bluffshoved
      NL 25 I tried bluffshove K6s once SB vs BU, but run into AK, so until you have very certain read that player is 4-bet bluffing then I would not really recommend start 5-bet shoving marginal hands

      best regards,
