      villain was 3betting and squeezing a LOT, i decide to 4bet, he calls
      its pretty much always AK from what ive seen on iPoker so far - sometimes its QQ but thats it

      i checked behind flop, turn he checks, so its pretty much always AK i thought, QQ would bet, and river he bets 1/2 pot,
      just wondering if u think its +EV to call river

      First, I wouldn't 4-bet bluff a hand like ours. 4-bet bluffs need to work a lot (60%+) so we want to create spots where our fold equity is highest (and thus 4-bet bluffing hands with blockers).

      As played I would bet/fold that flop to protect against AK/AQ, take down the pot. Once he checks twice I'd definitely bet the turn.

      As played calling river is fine as he almost never has anything better than us (maybe a 99,88 sometimes but he most likely checks those down).
