      what is villain's steal stats? does he steal a wide range in the small sample you have? villain pots his 4bet which makes me inclined to fold as his range seems stronger with such bet sizing.

      i dont think you should ever call here, as you will be oop and be put in super tough spots the majority of the time. make your decision now and either fold or shove it in.

      call for suuuuuuuure. 125bb deep + ip + aq suited.
      also, i know we dont have much info on villain so bvb AQs is a slam dunk 3b for value but dont forget to just call AJ, AT, KQ, KJ hands pf if villain doesnt call much 3b oop.
      did a silly mistake w/ AJo recently vs a good reg bvb

      So one person for call, one person for never call :tongue: We'll see how it's evaluated, btw what is bvb?

      Edit: Just worked it out, blind vs blind :)

      well yougotfelted decision was based on the fact that we will be ooop, so this is kind of biased :P

      its a 28bb ish 4bet i think its fine for us to call with such stack sizes. but hes right if he betts flop shove turn Qxxx or Axxx we're not enjoying our life. maybe easier on the second board texure tho as it makes his value range narrower.

      What do you wish to hit on flop? People don't 4-bet on this level as bluff, so best case scenario is that he had QQ. Most likely AK, KK, even AA, even if we have some blockers.

      If you have an ace on flop, you still can't be too sure about where you're at. So fold it there, and wait for a better chance (unless this guy tends to 4-bet light, then you could even call that).

      Hello seanspurs87,

      Having 125bb or whatsoever isn't really deep guys. :P Nor I don't see any reason to Call here vs such a huge 4bet whilst having most likely a hand which is dominated. Fold it here and let it go, there ain't many flops which are safe for you.

      Best Regards.
