      Hero bets 18 BB, fold

      Hero shows T:club: A:spade: (One Pair, Fours)
      Hero wins 36.1 BB


      Is it ok to float OOP? His stats look fishy so I call. Is it necessary to bet river since I have showdown value?

      Hi.

      Preflop: 4bet here. I think this call is very optimistic. Would require a strong read on my opponent 3betting way more than 15-18% in these positions. Your sample on his stats indicate that he's likely to be loose/aggro but it isn't that huge.

      Flop: Just fold here. I think you are making such plays without insufficient reads and this is linked to preflop. Though if AT is good enough to call pre then I think you can think about c/c F (without bluffing River, just showdown your hand on this low runout)

      When I get 3betted, I nearly never 4bet any hand. The reason is because most people are playing spewy postflop and dont make big mistakes preflop. So I call with QQ+ also.
      Another reason not to 4bet, is because I cant do it profitable. When I look at people stats, almost nobody folds to 4bet >50%, they shove 99+, AQ+, sometimes A2-A5s, so there is not much I can do.
      I can start 4betting with JJ+, but I am not going to play it so profitable, as when I play postflop.

      I agree about postflop in this hand.
