      Stacks:
      UTG ($4.28) 107bb
      UTG+1 ($2.11) 53bb
      HERO (CO) ($4.48) 112bb
      BTN ($4) 100bb
      SB ($3.32) 83bb
      BB ($4) 100bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 6 players) HERO is CO 9:spade: 9:club:
      2 folds, HERO raises to $0.12, 1 fold, SB raises to $0.40, 1 fold, HERO raises to $1.04, SB goes all-in $2.92, HERO folds

      Villain is 23/16, 3B:8.9, 15%(27) from SB, 280h

      I think, 4-bet bluffing is profitable against such a villain. As I recall, he insta 5-bet shoved.

      I think, against him I would call of with QQ+, AK

      Hello,

      Not really the best hand to 4bet bluff here:
      - we don't have any blockers - if we had KQo it would be better since we block QQ+, AK
      - we can call and play postflop if we think he is loose enough.

      Best,
      Plamen

      His AF is only 1.7 but yea, I could call and play in position. I guess our hand is too good to turn it into a bluff.

      Don`t you think, 4b here is still +EV, even with out blockers?

      to much value to 4b bluff people aren't 4 betting light I think it's a clear fold as he isn't even a fullstack we don't even get good outs to setmine.

      Considering villain only has 83 BB and you committed 26 BB you get 34% pot odds to go all in.

      Against:

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 64.23% 64.03% 0.20% QQ+, AKs, AKo
      CO 35.77% 35.58% 0.20% 99


      We have enough to call. So folding is a mistake unless you think he only has KK+ which I really doubt it.

      If you want to 4-bet bluff make it smaller, 20-21 BB and even that would give you 37% pot odds (when he shoves) so pretty close.
