      I think 4bet broke here is better than calling 4b because we are oop and ny cx/raise on this flop u are more likely isolate yourselft vs : AJ which is good but also AA/KK/JJ

      Hi Arigold,

      He does 3-bet quite a bit in the CO so far so why do we choose to slowplay our hand here OOP? Do you have a specific reason? I don't see villain cbetting too much postflop (57%) so I'd just 4-bet small and go with the hand.

      I've noticed the low cb in 3b pot after the call so yes there is not very much value in slowplaying . But his fold to 4b made me think there isn't too much value in 4b/calling . I can't decide what is the best line here .

      His fold to 4-bet is not that small and it's against everyone. Our image and dynamic matter as well and if we've been aggro (at the table or with him) I would imagine that he won't fold that much. And if we think that he folds a lot we can always start 4-betting smaller, with both value and bluffs. So I think that, 4-betting is better here, especially since we'd be OOP and his low flop cbet which will reduce the value we get in calling.
