      Hi guys,

      Villain seems loose over 15 hands 45/25 or something if I remember. This was his 1st 3bet. His search was off and he was goldstar so I couldn't determine yet if he was a fish or not.

      I tend to fold if I know he's fish because fish don't bluff3bet that often. When I'm not rly sure I kinda play my gto ranges and A9s is in my 4bet bluffrange. I get called and I guess his range is approx; lot of Axs, some SC's , some random AJ/AQ...

      Was considering checking for a moment because I don't make him fold better hands and he has Ahi himself a lot which he's pbb not folding. I still don't know what is best here and what are reasons for betting and checking. In the end I did bet because I had a backdoor so I can shove clubs and also for bluff prevention. I also made it kinda big so I hoped he folded his worse AX then... Not sure though

      Preflop: just fold preflop. given the stuff you posted here i think there's an 80%+ chance he's a fish. Serious NL50 regs are usually going to be plat star at the very least IMO

      Flop: Would bet here, but you are betting way too large. Rmb that this is a 4bet pot, and typical bet sizes are between 30-50%, since pot is already so huge compared to stack sizes. I expect his range to be wider than AX and pocket pairs here which is why I don't mind betting here.
