      SB wins 189.05 BB

      508 hands 27/22, 3bet 10 from sb 11, against BU 26
      I saw him once 3betting AK and shoving, and once 3betting 56s, thats all.

      Is it ok 4bet/call? Or maybe better call IP. He cbets 60% flop (3/5), and turn 0/3, there is high chance if I call to face overcard, and he doesnt pay me off.

      how to addapt in future against him, since he shoves KQo ? Is it ok to call AQ+, TT+? I dont know if to pay attention to this, because it can be that he is tilted, or that he saw me often 4betting.

      Hi mla,

      This really comes down to the math behind the hand.

      We get 43% pot odds so we have to compare that to how our hand does versus a range he may stack off with.

      This is all because the preflop raise and 3-bet (and then 4-bet) are a lot smaller than your average.

      I think that 4-betting for value here is most likely +EV and better than just calling (in a spot where villain is most likely 3-betting a wider range for value, given we min raise).
