      villain is 31/20/1.9
      7.1bet

      Ok so for the 4bet sizing. I do it to keep all his 3bet range in, so i can extract posflop with initiative. Normal 4bet leads to either getting shoved or called by a top range so i dont like it


      So posflop i bet flop prob can have made it bigger since hell have KQ KJs

      Turn is a scare card all pairs got pretty nice hands now



      My question is is it ever possible to call river? I think not dont know why i called tbh but ohwell

      Hello,

      Preflop I'd 4bet around $2.1-$2.2.

      Your flop bet is fine.

      Turn is not really a great card, but I think we can shove here.
      I don't really want to check here because there are a lot of bad river cards and I just don't want to face a bet.

      River is a good example for one of those bad cards.
      When he shoves I'm not really sure whether or not we should call and against unknown I might prefer to fold here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Just saw your second post:

      Well, I'd still go for a bigger size preflop. $2.2 is not that big and I actually don't really mind to pick up the pot right here, or get it in.

      Against this guy I'd just shove the turn - he could have stuff like QJ/KQ/AJ and so.

      The river sucks because the board is so connected and calling and folding are close.
      Without any specific information I will probably just take the safe way and fold.

      Well, I really doubt that he'd bet worse here on the river. The board is super connected and this is why I prefer folding.
