      SB mucked and lost (-$4 net)


      Villain is 25/22/15 (23% from BB), 114 hands.

      I guess bluff 4betting is OK here, i might call with AJs (is that a mistake, should i bluff 4bet AJs also?).

      I hit the flop hard, i guess its ok to give a free card here. What to do on this turn? AK isnt really in his range (i guess he would ship AK here every time), so i can only vbet vs AQ, and pretty much nothing else can call me here. Should i check again, and just vbet the river?

      What range can ppl call a 4bet OOP with? I guess even TT would ship it preflop, so its like 22-88, JTs, QJs, ATs or something like that?

      Hi Absolutism,

      Preflop: I think that both calling and 4-bet bluffing here are fine. With AJs I rather call and play postflop as it has great playability IP vs a wide range.

      Postflop: As played the turn bet is fine but we can even try a $2 bet. It's much better suited here than in the other example and you may induce something from villain.

      As far as their calling range goes it really depends on everyone. Usually TT+, AQ/AK but if the reg is tilted or has some "read" they can have random hands there like 65s and other garbage.
