      VPIP: 45, PFR: 32, 3B: 28, AF: 2,0, Hands: 60

      Another one who called my 4Bet.
      Again I usually put them on TT-QQ, AK, sometimes AQs.
      The 2nd Queen made me fear less his set, and the AQ is pretty rare. (apparently not)
      Thoughts?

      Hey AtrociousNightmare,

      4bet is fine in this instance. I wouldn't necessarily take AA/KK out of opponents range.

      You want to cbet for value on the flop.

      The turn is not a good card. Against the range you assigned of QQ-TT, AQs+, AKo, you still have 63% equity. You can value bet turn but only if you expect villain to always call with AK/JJ. If you don't think this is the case you'd be better off check/calling and hoping villain may sometimes bluff or check-down.

      Hey w34z3l .. :)

      if you go for ch/c ott and opponent plays chb, do you ever ch/c river? Imho it's 99.99% Qx, because any bluff/semibluff will just shove ott, right? But I can't see me thin vbetting on blank river too .. so I'd probably just hope for sd :) .. losing value here?

      thanks!

      Yeah, I agree calling the river is really awkward. It's debatable whether he'd ever pure-bluff for half pot.

      I think the chance of him betting river after he checks back the turn is really low though. It's hard to see him ever checking back a Qx on the turn. Then again it's difficult to see what other hands he could be doing it with unless he catches a miracle river, so check/fold is probably fine.
