      BB: $5 (100 bb)
      UTG: $10.98 (219.6 bb)
      Hero (MP): $5.91 (118.2 bb)
      CO: $2.01 (40.2 bb)
      BTN: $10.89 (217.8 bb)
      SB: $1.88 (37.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A A
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.15, CO folds, BTN raises to $0.40, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.15, BTN calls $0.75

      Flop: ($2.37) T Q 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.37, BTN calls $2.37

      Turn: ($7.11) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.39 and is all-in, BTN calls $2.39

      River: ($11.89) 3 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $11.89 pot ($0.59 rake)
      Final Board: T Q 9 8 3
      Hero mucked A A and lost (-$5.91 net)
      BTN showed J J and won $11.30 ($5.39 net)

      I realised my 4bet was very small, something I am working on atm after I did it.

      Regarding his 4bet range, we dont have much stats on the villain. Over 30 hands he has VPIP 30, PFR 28, 3Bet 25, Obv not enough stats for a clear view.

      I assumed he could be 3betting and then flattingwith hands such as AK,AQ,KQ,QQ,JJ,TT,

      I pot the flop and I am expecting he will be folding most of the times, he calls nevertheless and when the 8 club hits I honestly dont know what to do.

      I felt given the pot is better to take the agressive rather than passive approach since I am still good against KK,AQ,KQ.

      Any insight is more than welcome :f_biggrin:

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Preflop: looks good however since we are a bit deeper I'd make our 4-bet slightly larger.

      Flop: This is a spot where we could consider just shoving this flop. It will be hard for him to fold Qx, JJ, KK (if he ever calls this).
      Another reason for shoving is that stack sizes will be really awkward on the turn. Otherwise we can bet something really small like $1 to induce and ship turn.
