      SB: 107.35 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has T:spade: A:diamond:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, BTN raises to 9 BB, fold, fold, Hero raises to 20 BB, BTN calls 11 BB

      Flop: (41.5 BB, 2 players) 2:spade: J:diamond: 8:heart:
      Hero bets 18 BB, fold

      Hero shows T:spade: A:diamond: (High Card, Ace)
      Hero wins 39.45 BB

      144 hands, 31/27, 3bet 20, from BU 30

      He already 3bet me 2 times and sqeeze ones, I was 4bettign each time because his range is so wide, and he folded each time. This time, I was not sure if it is too much to 4bet 4 times in a row? I thought if it works, why not.
      When he calls, I guess it is better to give up? I did cbet because we are deep, and I expect him to call 4bet for set value and give up.

      Hi mla,

      Preflop: Given that we are deep we should expect villain to call a lot versus our 4-bet so I would be a bit more selective when it comes to what hands we 4-bet. Meaning that I would want hands with some playability.

      If we were 100 BB deep this would be perfectly fine because we don't expect calls to our 4-bets.

      As played your cbet is fine to try to get him to fold his overs and since this would be the first time you 4-bet you should get respect.
