      Flop: ($18) 4 T K (4 players)

      River: ($70) 4 (2 players)
      CO checks, BTN checks

      Anon table.

      Villains are unknown.

      As we are a bit deeper, I decided to just coldcall, instead of cold4bet/broke. I couldnt imagine they would go broke with something like JJ without any history, and with calling I keep their ranges wider.

      On the flop after a bet and a call I think it's reasonable to give up...

      Flatting is probably standard for preflop and 4betting can be discussed even if you fold to a jam but the idea is to get your 4bet called quite often which is hard without a reasonable idea. I prefer flatting the first time you play this situation.

      Postflop I like your disciplined fold on KTx when you get a called. You are sometimes ahead but not often and you lack playability.
