      PartyGaming - $0.04 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players

      SB: 148.75 BB (VPIP: 38.46, PFR: 5.17, 3Bet Preflop: 1.92, Hands: 119)
      Hero (MP): 198.5 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 9:club: J:heart:

      fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, SB calls 2.5 BB, fold

      In a fastforward game so I just try to steal loosely

      Flop: (7 BB, 2 players) 4:diamond: J:spade: 3:diamond:
      SB checks, Hero bets 4 BB, SB calls 4 BB

      Toppair so I cbet for protection

      Turn: (15 BB, 2 players) 4:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets 7 BB, SB calls 7 BB

      Only hands that improve are 4x. I guess it's ok to cbet here against overcards/flushdraws

      River: (29 BB, 2 players) J:diamond:
      SB checks, Hero bets 10 BB, SB raises to 134.75 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 124.75 BB

      River comes a J so I have my full house. Only things beating me is JJ, 44, right? So is it ok to call this all-in? Flushes completed, 33 has worse FH, so does 4x..

      Hero shows 9:club: J:heart: (Full House, Jacks full of Fours) (Pre 49%, Flop 2%, Turn 0%)
      SB shows 4:spade: 4:club: (Four of a Kind, Fours) (Pre 51%, Flop 98%, Turn 100%)
      SB wins 283.75 BB

      Preflop: This is way too loose. While you are playing in fast forward, this is NL4 after all. Everyone is going to be looser than optimal, and I don't think you should be stealing from MP.

      Flop: Standard bet here. I think a check is also fine. Our hand can only go for 2 streets of value at most, unimproved.

      Turn: I'll just check here, our kicker is kind of weak. I wouldn't mind betting KJ and AJ again though.

      River: I like the small bet to get a thin call from a hand like 88. Once we get raised this is pretty sick but I'm never folding. I expect to be splitting most of the time.

      We lose to one combo of 44, and we are chopping with AJ KJ QJ JT J9 which is like 15-20 combos. Despite the odds being extremely unfavourable I think it's kind of difficult to fold here.

      Him having flushes and 33/4X is very irrelevant, he would never play all those in this manner unless he's REALLY bad. I also think he could be bluffing some small % of the time.
