      iPoker - $0.50 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (SB): 103.5 BB
      BB: 100 BB (VPIP: 22.35, PFR: 19.20, 3Bet Preflop: 6.61, Hands: 1,462)
      CO: 100 BB (VPIP: 17.99, PFR: 15.55, 3Bet Preflop: 6.86, Hands: 1,683)
      BTN: 117.36 BB (VPIP: 19.56, PFR: 17.20, 3Bet Preflop: 3.98, Hands: 608)

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has J:club: 9:club:

      CO raises to 3 BB, fold, Hero raises to 10 BB, fold, CO raises to 22 BB, Hero calls 12 BB

      Flop: (45 BB, 2 players) 6:spade: K:club: T:club:
      Hero checks, CO bets 22 BB, Hero raises to 81.5 BB and is all-in, CO calls 56 BB

      Turn: (201 BB, 2 players) Q:heart:

      River: (201 BB, 2 players) 5:heart:

      Hero shows J:club: 9:club: (Straight, King High) (Pre 38%, Flop 47%, Turn 93%)
      CO shows K:diamond: A:diamond: (One Pair, Kings) (Pre 62%, Flop 53%, Turn 7%)
      Hero wins 197 BB

      He 4bets 23% CO calls 11%. opens 23% co. He 4betted me last 2 hands.
      I guess it is much better to call this hand 4bet IP, because we can take the pot down, we often get outs. Is it ok to shove to fold his Ax blockers? Or better to float oop, because he would most likely check behind turn those hands.

      I started calling lately aggro 4betters also with premiums, so is it ok to include hands like this in my calling range?

      I could play straight forward 4bet/5bet shove, with e.g TT+, AQ+, and few more bluffs, but I think most of reggs do the same and read the same strategy, so I cant make profit this way, but instead loose on rake. So would it be ok to try different strategy 4bet calling range from time to time in order to try to make preflop +EV vs reggs?

      Preflop: It's close and I don't mind calling or folding.

      • His 4b size is large (2.2X), and your 3bet size is large as well (10bb): favours a fold
      • His 4b range is wide: Favours a call

      If this were SB vs BU (2bb->8bb->17bb) it would be much more of a call

      Flop: Seems like a standard c/shove
