      Hey all!

      Villains:
      CO tight solid over small sample.
      BTN is a nit ( 15/9) over 90 hands. This was his first 3bet and it was pretty much instant.

      Preflop:
      I think BTN has QQ+ a lot of the time and I think he'll instafold QQ/AK to my cold4bet so I just called. This looks standard? I'm also calling QQ preflop but folding JJ and below. I'll probably 4bet bluff AK in this spot or should I just fold since there is a chance he isn't even 4betting AK?

      Flop:
      Have to call

      Turn:
      I'm afraid I'm never ever good here.

      Damn :(

      Why?! I just can't believe he would play AdK like this. His sizing OTT is also really value-ish. I also don't think he has random air as mentioned above.


      And what about this?

      I think BTN has QQ+ a lot of the time and I think he'll instafold QQ/AK to my cold4bet so I just called. This looks standard? I'm also calling QQ preflop but folding JJ and below. I'll probably 4bet bluff AK in this spot or should I just fold since there is a chance he isn't even 4betting AK?

      Abt postflop - i think u are often neglecting ur own image and perceived range. Yes he is nit but nits can bluff sometines too u know.

      I usually 4b kk pre even vs this guy. I wanna avoid 3way where both guys can setmine vs me rly often.

      But given ur reasoning i think its a reasonable alternative line.

      Yeah he can bluff sometimes but howmany times? Howmany times does he have to bluff?

      And what about AK preflop?
