      $0.10/$0.25 Ante $0.05 No Limit Holdem
      6 Players

      Stacks:
      UTG ($82.23) 329bb
      UTG+1 ($60.27) 241bb
      HERO (CO) ($62) 248bb
      BTN ($44.08) 176bb
      SB ($15.76) 63bb
      BB ($130.39) 522bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.65, 6 players) HERO is CO 9:club: A:heart:
      2 folds, HERO raises to $0.75, BTN raises to $2.25, 2 folds, HERO raises to $5.75, BTN calls $3.50

      Flop: 8:club: 10:heart: K:spade: ($12.15, 2 players)
      HERO checks, BTN checks

      Turn: 4:club: ($12.15, 2 players)
      HERO checks, BTN bets $5.80, HERO raises to $15.40

      30/23, 3b 9, 430 hands.
      Sample was smaller, he 3betted BTN like 12-13%.
      This is my 1st 4bet after few folds.

      Not having any reads, villain looked agrro but not so good.

      F: I think this board hit's his range and decided to x/f.
      T: His bet is quite small and he didn't take a stab on the flop (what I would expect he do with made hands). Felt weakness in his sizing and plan is to bet most rivers trying to fold out JJ,QQ (?), Tx.

      Thoughts?

      If you want to bluff him out, why dont you stab on the turn? It's much cheaper than chRaising, plus we dont know if he would even bet turn or not, and we certainly wont be good at showdown.

      I dont really like bluffing here for two reasons:
      - generally people call 4bets with strong hands (could be trapping with all monsters as well), so Villain's range could be rather strong
      - we dont have any equity to bluff with, which considerably lowers our EV (A:c9 would be fine for that f.e.)

      Hello DimnjacarGogi,

      Just Check/Fold the turn, even betting doesn't make sense there cause he is Checking behind all made hands there very often which ain't folding to your Bet. Nor of course Check/Raising doesn't make sense either cause you ain't really representing much with it.

      Best Regards.
