      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: If we were 150+ BB deep here we could talk about 4-bet /folding versus nitty CO.

      I think that we may have little value in a 4-bet here so calling becomes my preferred line and we get to keep the potentially fishier guy in.

      150bb deep 4b/fold means, you assume we are gettinng called decent amount of times, dont we? Otherwise we could do it with 72 aswell.
      And why is it 4b%fold 150 deep, but here with 108 deep just a call?

      That's of course the assumption. Deep players start to call AK/QQ/JJ type hands and shove mostly AA (the nitty guys anyway).

      Because we can't really 4-bet fold given our size here. Once we 4-bet we've committed a good chunk of the effective stack and this shallow (~100 BB) villain can stack off with worse.

      1) Are you referring to CO?
      2)If he can stack off with worse, why dont we 4bet it?
      I understand, that in this situation calling is better as you have said, but this last sentence is just weird.

      What I meant was that we cannot 4-bet fold KK because we can't expect him to only shove AA. He will occasionally have a worse hand, I would say enough for us to be able to call but not enough to be that much more +ev than a call.
