      Hello!

      Stats
      30 hands, 32/29/16.7 resteal:33

      I think preflop 4bet is not the best but not a -EV moove.
      But the question is not only for this hand. In theese bloff 4bet spots I often be in a trouble with Cb. When somebody who is a reg or an unknown his range is often AK QQ+. Have I got enough FE theese spots for a +EV Cb with 1/2 potsize?

      Thanks

      Hi.

      Preflop: That's a 3b, not a 4b. And I think that's the best play. AJo doesn't play well with a call in a 3way pot.

      Flop: Standard bet here

      Turn: Definitely betting here for value, you do rep a ton of draws and TPTK is really strong here. You only lose to JTs and TT which he shouldn't have too often.

      Once he jams here, I think it's a pretty easy call. He can definitely have a bunch of draws like KQ or club draws which opted to go for a call F raise T line.

      Thanks.

      Hi.

      While I think the 4b is +EV, I think that it's also +EV with a call. And I prefer using hands that are not +EV with a call to 4bet instead.

      AS played I think you have a really easy Flop cbet, I would just bet like $4.50 here and hope he folds hands like KQ or T9s. I think you can even get away with a smaller Preflop 4bet to $4.50-5.00

      A reg would never flat AK/QQ here, they almost always push here. I think a 4bet calling range is usually weaker. People don't trap with those hands unless they have reason to believe that your 4betting range is extremely air heavy and they want to keep your air hands in with AA/KK. But people will usually jam QQ/AK cos they are hands which are generally strong enough to play for stacks, but not quite strong enough to slowplay with.

      Thanks.
