      is this just spew? i'm really not a fan of calling OOP, but is it really bad to 4bet/fold a "value" hand like this?

      once villain calls, i don't actually like my cbet anymore because his range consists of various overpairs on this flop like TT-QQ maybe.. what do you think?

      Hi DrDunne,

      Preflop: Considering we are OOP here and villain 3-bet a min raise I don't mind bluffing with our hand.

      The EV of the 4-bet bluff is probably larger than the EV of calling against unknown.

      And preflop we have 2 blockers so that increases our FE.

      As played I don't mind taking one small stab as I can imagine villain calling a lot of hands to hit (he thinks it's a good price preflop which you gave him by 4-betting smaller compared to stack sizes).

      He can fold all broadways and small PPs. Even 99 folds here a lot.
