      Firstly, should I call a villain's pre-flop 4-bet? Was pretty sure about his c-bet on flop so I decided to take a passive line with TPTK. Turn was pretty good to me, giving me a nut FD with a good made hand. I didn't take too much time calling a BTN shove, but was this actually a good call against such an opponent?

      Hi Riks,

      Preflop: Why are we calling the 4-bet preflop? If we feel we are ahead of his range we should just 5-bet here although I would say it's quite light to 3-bet/5-bet a guy like him (without info/history). And calling the 4-bet without info is suicidal.

      I'd call preflop (so I don't turn a great hand into a bluff because I'd have to fold to a 4-bet) and play postflop.

      What hands are we ahead off, besides a bluff when villain bets flop/turn?
