      I don't think you need to make your cold 4bets so large. 2X ($8) should suffice. And we should do it with a wide range comprising of all the blocker hands like AJ/KQ/AQ.

      I think flop check is fine but you must be prepared to call Turn and River. I'm just not too sure how often he actually bluffs with such a small bet size. If he were a fish this would be a snap call. But vs a reg, I actually think a fold here shouldn't be too bad.

      We are getting 20% pot odds. Does the average reg bluff here >20% of the time? Maybe not. So folding here is probably good.

      Nice hand.
