      Good spot/bad spot? I wasn't expecting to see a set of tens so I'm glad I didn't take it any further than that.

      Good spot but once he called he is on bluffcatch probably from the start and we have no idea when and if he lets it go, i would size the bet 2/3 pot to look standard and not induce a light call.

      Hi Sketchzr,

      Preflop: If you are stealing a wide range (like it seems you are), especially 4 handed why not open smaller preflop? 2.5 or even 2 BB is better here than 3x as your steals have to work less often and you can also reduce the amount people 3-bet you to which allows you to call more 3-bets (of course not with this hand).

      Postflop: As played, I'd cbet the flop despite the lack of equity because we can continue on a lot of turns.

      As played the turn bet is fine and you should get plenty of better hands to fold and I would also most likely just check it back because his range has a fair amount of Ax (after turn) that won't fold.
