      ninnu7 posts SB $0.05, halhalhal55 posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Cooperman451 has J:diamond: J:spade:

      fold, Cooperman451 raises to $0.30, PNedved11 raises to $1.05, fold, fold, Cooperman451 raises to $2.25, PNedved11 calls $1.20

      Flop: ($4.65, 2 players) Q:diamond: 5:heart: 9:spade:
      Cooperman451 bets $1.75, PNedved11 raises to $7.36 and is all-in, fold

      Was tied between 4betting small and shoving. Decided to 4bet small to keep his range wider and then I was really unsure what to do when he shoves. Thought his range would look something like AJ+ 99+. Had no read on how wide he shoves and could have been drawing dead so I folded.

      Hi.

      Preflop: I prefer the smaller 4bet. I think you can make it slightly larger though - This guy looks like some aggro fish who will probably call the 4b with a ton of worse hands like AJ or 88.

      Flop: I don't like betting Flop without a plan. Should you call a raise? Do you expect to get called by worse hands on the Flop? What do you do on the Turn if he calls? Do you c/c or c/f?

      Given that the fish seems loose and aggro over a small sample, I think the best line here is the check and probably call off your entire stack unless the board runs out super ugly. I would be certain that he will show up with enough air most of the time to make your play profitable with his random JTs/78s/A2s type of hands.

      Yer I was really tempted to x/c which would probably lead to me gii on the turn but think I was scared of an A or K falling which is stupid so I prefer your line.

      i think even if a K/A falls on the Turn (which only happens on 6 out of 47 cards in the deck = ~13%), I think you can still c/c anyway if you think his range is wide enough.
