      Villain had a regular 3bet stat maybe a little hihg but had 3bet in position against me a few times. He had not fold to 4bet stat as he had not faced a 4bet. I felt it was ok to 4bet with this hand but I'm not sure.

      Hi Kevin,

      Preflop: Are we 4-bet calling or 4-bet folding?

      I prefer to 4-bet/fold hands with blockers because then we increase our FE.

      As an exercise, calculate how much FE you need in this spot and see how big his 3-bet/fold range has to be for us to be able to 4-bet bluff profitably.

      I was intending to 4bet call as any strategy I have studied indicates that is incorrect to 4bet fold even though I think villains shove range crushes us.

      I prefer to 4-bet/fold hands with blockers because then we increase our FE.

      Can you explain this further?

      Villain needs to fold 65.8% of the time for us to break even.

      65.8% of his "8" 3bet stat is 5.26. Therefore I think if he shoves anything less than 2.74% of his range our move will be profitable. Correct?

      Look at what QQ+, AK is in terms of % and then discount one A or K. And you should have your answer :)

      Well QQ+, Ak is 2.56%
      If we remove an Ace his range is 2.11%.
      Therefore my 4bet has more equity if I have an Ace or K in my hand?

      By having an A or K in your hand you reduced the chance that he has one and thus the chance that he can 5-bet versus you.

      So keeping everything else the same that means we have slightly more FE (he has less value in his range).
