      I'm new to NL16, and im very suprised how much i get called when i 4bet in this limit. I have no clue what range can they call a 4bet with...

      On the flop i tried a cbet vs AQ, AJ, somewhere i read that 1/4th of the pot is the standard cbet sizeing, but im not sure, and even if i bet bigger, do i have bigger FE?

      P.S: i had no clue where to put NL16 hands, im sorry if it should go to the other topic (up to NL10).

      Hi Absolutism,

      Preflop: looks fine although if you expect to get called a lot we should not 4-bet these hands.

      To be honest with you we should not expect to get called a lot but in this case we are 125 BB deep and the 4-bet is 24 BB so the guy may think he has the odds to call.

      Postflop: As played I rather cbet a bit bigger or just ck/fold. We are giving an easy chance to float really cheap for 25% of pot. I'd bet 40% or so if we bet but I think I prefer ck/fold because his range is usually 99+ and some AQ/AK that probably don't fold to a bet.
