      PF= 4b for value

      Flop= value+ protection, after he shoves I put him on JJ but can I really bet fold here w KK in 4bet pot? // I thought/hoped he can have FD+overs, naked FD, QQ.

      He insta calls and shows me JJ.

      Hey cozacu,

      Villain's range is probably JJ+ and AK/AQ. Vs that range you are committed.
      Board: Jd7d6c
      Equity Win Tie
      CO 42.51% 39.85% 2.65% { KhKs }
      BU 57.49% 54.84% 2.65% { JJ+, AdKd, AdQd }

      I think you played it fine.

      The idea of folding an overpair in a 4bet pot seems ridiculous to me. He's gonna have a ton of draws and so many worse made hands like AJ/KJs/QQ/TT. You got unlucky here for sure.

      Anyway I would like to point out that you should probably be betting less than half pot in 4b pots and not 66% pot. I think it's way too large and you should make it cheaper for your bluffs.

      I bet it here larger than standard because of the drawheavy board and I had no redraw with no K :diamond:

      Yea, but largest I'll go is 50% pot. Just because board is draw heavy doesn't mean you must bet so large. You should always think about the stack:pot ratio here and in a 4-bet pot, it's gonna be really low.
