      Poker Stars $10.00 No Limit Hold'em - 5 players - View hand 2115901

      BB: $10.00 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 13, 3B: 12, AF: 2,3, Hands: 150, with this hand, he has a 38% 3b vs me in 8 hands, when I'm stealing
      UTG: $10.00 - VPIP: 0, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 11
      CO: $19.17 - VPIP: 50, PFR: 6, 3B: 0, AF: 2,1, Hands: 354
      Hero (BTN): $10.00 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2,0, Hands: 108968
      SB: $11.58 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 18, 3B: 4, AF: 2,7, Hands: 131

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with K :heart: 8 :heart:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 1 fold, BB raises to $0.65, Hero raises to $1.60
      This is a good semibluffing hand imo. I can't call, and the guy obviously 3bets way too much against me.

      While 3 out of 8 hands isn't exactly a reliable sample I think it's fine to throw in a loose 4bet. K8s is a good candidate so are hands that can't really call like K2s+ A2-A9s etc

      Raise size is a little too big though I think 1.30 to 1.40 is enough to achieve the effect of him folding his bluff.

      I was thinking about : wouldnt that look weak?
      BUt on the other hand, it could also look like an induce.
      I mean, would you 3b the same amount with AA?

      With your huge size i think u need him to fold 65% of the time if not more.

      With a smaller size of 1.30 your required fold equity to breakeven here goes down to around 55-57%. That's a pretty huge difference in my opinion. He may flat but i think he would usually play fit or fold postflop.

      Also i think you can just use this same small size with your entire range in these positions, being in position. I wont be too afraid of getting exploited here.
