      I have 76 hands onhim. VPiP 39 23 PFR. 3bet 8/34 (24%) and sqeeze 2/9 (22%)
      Flop cbet 6/6, turn 1/1, river 0/1 (exaclty as he played here :) )
      So is it better to call, because my hand is good if I hit, and it is suited, or even 4bet, considering that CO just calls?
      Should I just call down, or even raise?

      Another question: Should I 3bet preflop? CO has VPiP 16, fold to 3bet 77%. I dont want him to fold weaker, and call with TT, JJ, AK or something, because I am OOP, and dont hit often.
      I 3bet around 8-10% mostly targeting people who fold more than 80% to 3bet. But if they see I am calling with AQ and AK, then they can exploit me with 4betting ? So my 3bet range has QQ+ just sometimes AK and AQ, never TT and JJ. And a lot of bluffs mostly suited connectors.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine. I wouldn't 4-bet there unless you are looking to get it in with either of them.

      I also wouldn't 3bet CO because we are turning our hand into a bluff. So calling is fine, especially with fish behind.

      As played, considering what we know about villain I would just call down. There's little value in a raise.
