      Hey, BB 57/26/48 hands
      22.7%3b, no other relevant stats

      Seems like a pretty perfect 4b spot vs this maniac.
      Think I should make it bigger being deep though. Maybe $5.5~6?

      Postflop I think my sizing is pretty terrible, probably fine with 100bb stacks but not 200bb, I'm not too sure about playing deep.

      How are you playing vs a flop raise? I guess calling is fine vs a small raise.

      checking back to realise my equity seemed best but I'm really not sure, 9 seems to hit him fairly hard.




      Hero (BTN): $51.68 (206.7 bb)
      SB: $45.67 (182.7 bb)
      BB: $61.97 (247.9 bb)
      UTG: $37.15 (148.6 bb)
      MP: $62.30 (249.2 bb)
      CO: $11.78 (47.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 3 K
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, SB folds, BB raises to $1.75, Hero raises to $4.25, BB calls $2.50

      Flop: ($8.60) 6 J 8 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $3.50, BB calls $3.50

      Turn: ($15.60) 9 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($15.60) 2 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $6.50, BB calls $6.50

      Results:
      $28.60 pot ($1.43 rake)
      Final Board: 6 J 8 9 2
      Hero showed 3 K and won $27.17 ($12.92 net)
      BB mucked T T and lost (-$14.25 net)

      100 bb deep I think you can 4bet bluff something like 3.75 or 4 at 100bb effective. but at 200bb I prefer a call to play in position deep against a very weak range . check his bb resteal stat it could be very much higher than 22% which means a very weak range.

      As played bet flop bigger for more fold equity and you have a strong draw.

      Turn is a bad card as it completes draws and some hands made 2pair.

      River bet super big like 13 or 14 for max value. A fish with 55 vpip is going to call a lot there and you don't want to lose value

      Ok thanks :) I'm not used to calling so wide IP, so what kind of hands are you 4betting here?
      Just super polarized? Maybe some offsuit blockers like KJo ATo or smth? Although they are probably good enough to flat as well if we are calling K3s

      It depends on how he reacts to 4bets. To get to this we need huge samples or some good reads.

      Is he 5betting very wide over our 4bets? The wider this is the lesser and stronger I'm 4betting here.

      Is he calling 4bets with a hand like a5? Or hands like TQ? If he is then 4betting AT and KJ for value could be good.

      How does he play post flop? Bets all streets? Bets flop and give up turn? The weaker he plays on the flop and turn for example just check folding the flop, the more inclined I am to call and bet the flop than 4bet with a hand like what you had.

      If you are not comfortable calling this wide then maybe stick to the 100bb stack.
