      These are the hands i hate the most. Im not even sure, what to do preflop, i dont want to flat OOP, but if i 3bet, and he just flats, i will be in a huge trouble if i dont hit.

      Ofc this is what happened, and the board is bad for me to bluff (and he never folds to cbets anyway). What to do here?

      Hello,

      Preflop are you going to stack off against this guy here?
      If yes, then I like 4betting and your sizing looks good.

      As played prelfop, the flop really sucks for our hand since most of his hands now have something and checking with the intention to check/fold is good.

      Check/folding the turn is good too.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I would love to stack off preflop vs this guy:) But he didnt let me to do so...

      Maybe i should 4bet even bigger? But then he might fold way to much of his range preflop...

      I don't think we need a bigger 4bet preflop here. This sizing is just fine to me.
