      iPoker - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      UTG: $15.61
      MP: $5.39
      CO: $22.10
      BTN: $11.40
      SB: $10.00
      Hero (BB): $14.72

      SB posts SB $0.05, Hero posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has A:club: Q:club:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.30, SB raises to $1.00, Hero raises to $2.45, fold, fold


      Hero wins $2.30


      Both villains seemed fairly solid at first glance.

      Basically, BU had been stealing a decent amount, so I figured SB woud be on a somewhat wide range as well, trying to simply get BU to fold. And a cold 4bet usually looks very strong, so I could probably get him to fold a lot of the time.

      Better to fold here? Or is 4betting here, with these reads, fine?

      Hello,

      I prefer folding without information here.

      People usually does not 3bet bluff OOP a lot so I don't think we will have enough FE.

      Best,

      Hi Tino,

      Our reads are not the strongest however we can still 4-bet bluff with 2 blockers because there's a high chance, that based on what we know so far, that SB is bluffing.

      The size of the 4bet could be slightly smaller but other than that it looks fine.

      Remember we are risking 2.45 to win 1.45 which requires 63% FE (not counting postflop if he ever calls).
