      iPoker - $0.50 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      SB: 107.9 BB (VPIP: 19.92, PFR: 12.03, 3Bet Preflop: 1.89, Hands: 271)
      BB: 240.44 BB (VPIP: 19.89, PFR: 16.20, 3Bet Preflop: 7.10, Hands: 4,235)
      CO: 115.56 BB (VPIP: 23.44, PFR: 20.22, 3Bet Preflop: 10.69, Hands: 1,302)
      Hero (BTN): 100 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 8:spade: A:club:

      fold, Hero raises to 2 BB, fold, BB raises to 8 BB, Hero raises to 21 BB, BB calls 13 BB

      Flop: (42.5 BB, 2 players) T:spade: A:spade: K:club:
      BB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: (42.5 BB, 2 players) A:diamond:
      BB bets 32 BB, Hero calls 32 BB

      River: (106.5 BB, 2 players) 8:diamond:
      BB bets 187.44 BB, Hero calls 47 BB

      BB shows T:diamond: T:club: (Full House, Tens full of Aces) (Pre 71%, Flop 94%, Turn 84%)
      Hero shows 8:spade: A:club: (Full House, Aces full of Eights) (Pre 29%, Flop 6%, Turn 16%)
      BB wins 0 BB
      Hero wins 196.5 BB

      He 3bets vs me so often from BU, and folds 40% only to 4bet so I think it is pointless to 4bet vs such a player (most players in ipoker are as him).

      So when he calls me, the board cant be worse, so I plan to call turn and fold river?

      Hey GingerKid,

      Theoretically a good spot to 4-bet. You also hold A-blocker.

      No point 4betting vs a guy who never folds though. You simply want to depolarize your 4betting range and 4bet for value.

      I agree with your comments on turn + river. Obviously you can't fold once you boat up though.
