      Is it ok bluff 4bet? Usually people fold to it except with KK+, especially If I am unknown to him.

      Is it ok check flop? I expect him to have AK, JJ+. On river I call because there are less combos of Ax, and people play spewy in 3 or 4bet pots.

      Hi Mla,

      Preflop: I think that your 4-bet bluff with a blocker is perfectly fine, especially in these positions.

      Postflop: However, I feel that our postflop play is actually rather spewy. He can have plenty of better Ax hands there and I doubt many guys at these limits turn JJ-TT into a bluff. So calling him down (as an unknown) is rather light.
