      As the sample is small, and we dont really know his postflop tendencies, I'd prefer 3bet preflop, but calling aint wrong either.

      After he didnt cbet this flop, he could have some Qx/Jx, PPs, or total air which missed this flop entirely. Could even have Ax going for potcontrol, as we dont know his cbet frequencies at all.
      With made hands he could easily ch/call at least once, so I agree that taking a stab on the flop often wont be enough, so I'd rather check it behind, and see what the turn brings.

      Hey,

      I also prefer to 3bet.

      Mehh I think I'd take a stab here. I think people give up a lot if they check here. We also get 2 freecards

      Hello livethelife7,

      Preflop: Fold it preflop or either 3bet it. You can't call vs 4bb raise here just like that whilst he is also unknown.

      As played
      Postflop: Check behind here vs his Checking range which starts from Ax hands.

      Best Regards.
