      This guy was a very 3-bet aggressive regular. He played 26/22 with about 15% 3-b and about 30% 3-b on the button particularly against me because we were both deep.

      I 4-bet him before and 1 time he folded. Another time he called the 4-bet and on Kxx board he folded to a c-bet of the same size as in this hand. Btw, he never 5-bet.

      Now I need some help with this hand because I'm quite inexperienced in deep play. If anything should be done differently, please let me know.

      Hey Burek2000,

      Can I ask what your normal 4bet sizing is? If it is the same as OP then I think you should think about adjusting in game. Playing 150 bbs deep is very different to 100. If we follow the same bet sizings then we will lose value as pot to stack ratio will be smaller meaning that we will be way less likely to get all the money in. I think i would make it a little bigger pre flop, although smaller may induce more bluffs from him.

      The flop here is one of the worst you could hope for, we know he is aggressive pre flop, did this continue to post flop too?

      I think we played this hand very well, on the turn we can probably c/f but vs the small sizing he could have J10, K10, A10, JJ and trying to buy showdown cheaply, so I'd call there.

      On the river we have literally just got the absolutely nut worst run out and we should just say WP, good call pre flop mate and fold.

      Now lets think about what run outs we can go broke on? When he doesn't raise the flop I don't think he has 2 pair very often, on small cards I think we should bet again as most of his pairs will have straight draws and won't fold but probably wont bet when we check to. This means if the turn is 7 or lower we should bet and go all in and if not we should probably check and decide.

      Again, well played.
