      $101.75 pot ($2.50 rake)
      Final Board: 4 Q 3 2 K
      Hero mucked A A and lost (-$50.75 net)
      BB showed Q Q and won $99.25 ($48.50 net)

      pre I called cause hes got some 3bet and to strenghten my calling range and cause he did cbet much (maybe sample is low but whatever) and cause I like to play AA in 3bet pot.
      Flop I called cause board is dry and I wanted him to bluff again.
      Turn I think I could shove, AQ, KK, FD, FD+GS prbably wouldnt fold.
      River is really nasty, semibluffs just hit as KK also did. Im praying here for him to show AK which he doesnt have too many combos, so maybe on this card I should just fold? My friend that plays nl100 sh said that villain can have AK here and I cant fold, but even if he does bet AK on that river always, Im not getting correct odds until he have some bluffs which I dont see.

      Hi Sand,

      Preflop: I think that justifying the call with "balancing" vs unknown and small sample (5 hands for cbet) is definitely wrong.

      You are in a position where villain can 3-bet/stack off ligther so we want to take full advantage of our strong hand. So without actual info that tells us that we can show a higher EV by calling I would just 4-bet here for pure value.

      As played, unless you can expect villain to 3-barrel bluff shipping turn is fine. And we can't really fold the river.
