      Hero shows 8:spade: J:spade:

      minraises area weak - folds a lot preflop or post flop.


      I think in session he was isolating this fish a lot. And usually poeple fold a lot vs cold 4bets so I decided I can 4bet, and in case he calls, I still can hit some draws.

      cold 4betting is a good tool to use when you have the preflop read on UTG and the great price given BU's sizing (which is normal, but gives you a great price nevertheless).

      I would however choose hands with Kx or Ax blockers. There's a good % difference in hands they can 5bet vs you when you hold Kx or Ax so makes your 4bet bluff more likely to work.
