      PartyGaming - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (UTG): $49.59
      BTN: $31.81
      SB: $50.24
      BB: $5.95

      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero has Q:spade: Q:club:

      Hero raises to $0.75, BTN raises to $2.25, fold, fold, Hero calls $1.50

      Flop: ($4.85, 2 players) J:diamond: 3:diamond: T:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $3.50, Hero raises to $11.70, fold


      I should 4bet pre.

      As played, c/raising doesnt make much sense (TT+ beat me and AQ+ fold) and c/c doesn't protect, so?

      Hello 13BlackCats,

      I don't really get the point of the Check/Raise? You are trying to bluff him out of the pot or what's the purpose of it?

      4betting preflop depends again vs what kind of opponent we are.

      Best Regards.

      Villain is unknown so 4bet pre?
      and what would be the best line postflop?

      You are deep, so are you sure that you can 4bet for value vs unknown?

      Postflop we clearly should be playing way ahead/behind instead than turning our hand into bluff. Cause you can't really Check/Raise for value.
