      PRE
      Don`t think I have any choice but 4-bet here.

      FLOP
      I think, I missed a c-bet. His flat range is probably 99-JJ/QQ, AQ+, maybe KQs. So, my 1/2 pot c-bet should work 1/3 of them time and he`s probably folding all his over-cards with-out FD.

      TURN
      A-high might be good, so I`m trying to go to showdown.

      RIVER
      Sometimes he could bluff AQ the same way. Call?

      Hey Dienaszaglis,

      Preflop 4bet should be fine. UTG looks like a fish, and SB potentially also after this 3bet sizing.

      A small cbet will be fine. If villains range is wide you can even get called by worse here if he has any SCs in his range or likes to call again with overs.

      If you are only folding out AQ/KQ though it's not technically a "bluff" as opposed to a protection bet. So from a purely theoretical point of view it may be better to check rather than turning an ok bluff-catcher into a bluff. Checking is perfectly fine and certainly not a mistake.

      Turn play is fine. You have the best hand very often. You could even consider betting $0.80 for protection/thin-value. Checking is fine.

      I'd probably bluff-catch river. 8 misses his range, 8x is usually donking turn. He has stuff like AQ/KQs, but also even hands like TJ/KJ if he really is a fish.
