      Quite interesting spot. Opponent has been tricky post-flop and close to maniac, but never 3-bet before pre-flop (+100hands). Guess it's standard fold? Can't see many worse hands in his range, not sure that he would 5-bet with AQ or JJ, so range is probably AK or QQ+.

      Hello CPallo,

      Then rather just fold to the 3bet in first place if you don't assume him being 3bet-maniac preflop. Wouldn't make sense to waste the money whilst he is also 3betting vs MP.

      Best Regards.

      Wouldn't it make my game play a bit exploitable there? The sample is still small, and folding to 3-bet with AK is extremely nitty. By 4-betting I find out what hand he is moving with, because if he decided to 3-bet with QQ, AK (I presume his range is QQ+, AK pre-flop) he wouldn't 5-bet this hand and might even fold. So 4-bet is quite a information bet that narrows his range, if he 5-bets, and I still save 14,4d by folding.

      So, can we ever do 4-bet/fold against a opponent like this, or should we flat call and put us into a mystery spot post-flop? Or just fold to 3-bet, which might be a bit nitty IMO :D
