      Stacks:
      cincinkid (UTG) ($25.32) 127bb
      CO ($7.29) 36bb
      BTN ($27.26) 136bb
      SB ($23.06) 115bb
      BB ($28.65) 143bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.30, 5 players) cincinkid is UTG Q Q
      cincinkid raises to $0.70, 3 folds, BB raises to $2.20, cincinkid raises to $5, BB goes all-in $28.65, cincinkid goes all-in $20.32

      I raise from MP so his 3B range should be pretty tight.
      But i don't really want to call against his 3B since i never know where i'm at.
      If i put him on AK,QQ+ i can 4B/call even though we are a at 120BB.
      Can i ever put him on a stronger range like that which results in a fold?

      Final Pot: $53.87

      Wrong. If he only 3bets with QQ+/AK, then he wont fold to your 4bet (no bluff 3bets), so you will always go broke, and against that range you have only 40%, so it's -EV.

      I made the error of including my $5 4B to my calculation.

      So if i can't put him on at least 1 bluffhand or JJ i can't 4B at all.

      Yeah, I think that's the case...

      Hello chocular77,

      You can't really 4bet for value here vs such a person. He is also 3betting vs UTG/MP which a strength sign. So at the best could consider calling and playing it postflop whilst also being a bit deeper.

      Best Regards.
