      BB shows K:spade: K:diamond: (One Pair, Kings) (Pre 82%, Flop 92%, Turn 95%)
      BB wins $6.80

      Villain is a fairly solid reg, 21/19/7.2 (3bet) over ~230 hands.

      Villain had made this squeeze play 3 times before already. So I made a 4bet.

      As played, I definitely should have folded to the 5bet. I simply overplayed my hand here.

      But my question is, now that I'm looking back at it, would it have been better to just call here, and play a pot in position against a very aggressive player postflop? Or is it fine to 4bet fold as well (of course my 4bet broke was pretty bad).

      Hi Tino,

      Preflop: If we are 4-bet folding here I'd much more prefer to just call and this way we also give SB, a fishy guy, a chance to come in the pot.

      We now keep villains range wide and we do great against it, play IP and potentially have a fish in the pot.
