      fold, UTG+1 calls $0.25, fold, fold, Hero raises to $1, CO raises to $3.20, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $7, CO raises to $11, Hero calls $4



      Villain is std reg a little aggro. I doubt he does this as a bluff very often although I have seen it a bit at these stakes as a bluff.

      I presume calling here is fine as we're a little deep, but what about 100bb starting stacks?

      Hey ChangNoi77,

      If you 4bet bluff you usually want to shut down to any further action. The problem is that you suffer from reverse implied odds in this spot. You don't know whether a K or J is going to be good card for you on the flop - you could easily be dominated and end up getting stacked. Your 4bet failed, I would fold.

      It's true the deeper the stacks the more likely you should be to call. However you are only 130bb deep. You would probably need to be approaching 200bb deep to make this a profitable call imo.
