      NL Holdem $0.20(BB) Replayer
      SB ($38.01)
      BB ($4.24)
      UTG ($17.72)
      UTG+1 ($22.93)
      Hero ($24.47)
      BTN ($20.30)

      Dealt to Hero A:heart: K:spade:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.50, fold, SB raises to $1.50, fold, Hero raises to $3.70, fold

      Hero shows A:heart: K:spade:

      Hero wins $3.20

      only 2.5 bb open sinse I expect to get 3bets, he was 3beting a lot. Now is that good to 4bet - maybe I just waste my hand because worse hands fold and JJ+ stacks off?

      Of course I can make other PPs to fold so its good for me.

      Hi Speed,

      This also comes down to image/history. If you have 4-bet him before then 4-betting for value here is great.

      If you have reasons to believe that he folds a lot to 4-bets and rarely calls/shoves much worse then calling to keep his very wide range in is fine as well. I would imagine, given his raise size, that he is trying to possibly raise a lot of hands for thinner value.

      He also seems to be passive postflop (turn and river) so he may actually be a guy that's somewhat easier to play against postflop when your calling range is so much stronger than his 3-bet range.
