      iPoker - $0.20 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: 133.95 BB
      UTG: 122.65 BB
      MP: 60 BB
      CO: 102 BB
      Hero (BTN): 102 BB
      SB: 96.5 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has J:diamond: T:heart:

      fold, fold, CO raises to 3 BB, Hero raises to 9 BB, fold, fold, CO raises to 20 BB, Hero raises to 34 BB, fold

      Hero shows J:diamond: T:heart: ()
      Hero wins 41.5 BB



      1.5 hands 22/19 fold to 3bet 87%, 4bet from CO 38%, open raise from CO 25%

      I 3bet because he is folding so much. Then I saw that he 4bets from co so wide, and from all other position very low, and I saw him only stacking with AK, QQ+, so I tried small 5bet, and expect him to fold his trash, and if he shows I fold. So I invest 25 BB with 5bet to win, 34bb, and I guess I have enough FE. Also I think my 5bet size looks more like AA?

      Hi mla,

      Unlike the other 4-bet/5-bet hands I think this is a fold.

      With 102 BB you are almost committing yourself here with the 5bet and we have less blockers than before. And we can expect BTN vs CO lighter stack offs.

      Over what sample is that 38%?

      it is over 1500 hands he 4bets 5/13 times from CO, and I never saw him stacking with weaker than QQ+, AK.
      Why am I commiting with 34BB? If he shoves I need to pay 66BB, to win 136BB, and I have only 25% odds against AKs, AKo, QQ+. Ok, then I am almost commiting, it is close.
      But is then better if I bluff 5bet to push, or like I did? For example hands like A2s 88,99, TT I would have 30% equity. I think that min 5bet looks strongenr than push?

      Doesn't a 5bet look strong regardless of the size?

      Are you calling a shove 5-bet any lighter than you are calling/shoving a smaller 5 bet? With 100 BB effective.
