      A couple of hands before he 4bet shoved 88 preflop.

      With the read that villain 4bets a lot of his strong hands preflop I figured his raise is skewed mostly towards draws/weak PPs so I decided to bluffcatch 2 streets.

      Still calling on any non turn.

      All draws missed, villain would likely check back with weak PPs so I figure it's either a 3x or a missed draw. Given the low price I decided to bluffcatch.

      Hey Dawidas888,

      I think your reasons for bluffcatching in this hand are on the thin side. 4bet shoving PP's was popular in 2010 and is essentially a bluff not a value shove.

      Likely would just fold to flop raise unless he has raised flop light previously. Even his bluffing range may have decent equity against your hand.
