      I can not find the exact hand history but it was something like this.

      CO: $20
      Hero (BTN): $20
      SB: $20
      BB: $20 - reg, 20/18
      UTG: $20
      MP: $20

      Pre Flop: ($0.30) Hero is BTN with A :heart: A :diamond:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, 1 fold, BB raises $2.10, Hero calls

      Flop: Q :spade: J :diamond: 9 :spade:
      BB checks, Hero bets 3/4 pot, BB raises allin, Hero...

      Villain was standard regular, maybe a bit on the aggressive side but nothing crazy, at least I hadn't seen him do anything weird until than.

      Hi Zobu,

      Is there a particular reason as to why you were slowplaying here preflop?

      Given the scenario we have on hand and aggressive image we should simply 4-bet for pure value.

      As played I'd find it hard to believe that villain will check many of his stronger hands here so it looks more like a pair+draw or some sort of semibluff, so I'd call. Of course he can have some better hands but I think he can have plenty worse.
