      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 5 players) cozacu is BTN K:spade: Q:diamond:
      2 folds, cozacu raises to $0.30, SB raises to $1.05, 1 fold, cozacu raises to $2.30, SB calls $1.25

      SB bets $2.50, cozacu folds

      Final Pot: $6.15

      SB wins $6.97 (net +$3.22)

      cozacu lost $2.30

      villain mostly unknown, made a few 3bets.

      I decide to go for a 4bet bluff, after i got called, i simply gave up the hand because calling a 4bet OOP vs an unknown ( he didn't know me either) usually indicates a bad ass monster hand.

      Was there a better way to go with the hand?

      Hi Cozacu,

      Preflop: Since villain is unknown I don't mind the 4-bet bluff. Once he calls I'd shut down as most villains at these limits call with AK/AQ, QQ-JJ type hands, and big slowplays like KK/AA

      With more info on villains tendencies we can call KQ preflop but I still like the 4-bet.

      Flop: We could take a small stab of about $1.2-$1.4 to try to get him to fold non Ax hands but other than that giving up is fine.
