      BTN: $5.37 (107.4 bb)
      SB: $10.91 (218.2 bb)
      BB: $6.51 (130.2 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $5.48 (109.6 bb)
      MP: $6.78 (135.6 bb)
      CO: $5.78 (115.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A J
      Hero raises to $0.15, 2 folds, BTN raises to $0.35, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.10, BTN calls $0.75

      Flop: ($2.27) 3 6 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.10, BTN folds

      Villain seems spazzy over a small sample, 38/25 over 50 hands, 33% 3bet (small sample of course but still looks pretty aggro).

      Is it fine to 4bet this pre flop? Clearly this is not a 4bet for value, but purely a 4bet bluff. I don't really think I like it too much. Though he does seem to be a bit of a spazz, he is 3betting me when I'm UTG and I only have a small sample on him. I didn't really want to call because I would have to play out of position without iniative. That said though, he seems to 3bet quite a lot so AJs could easily be ahead of his range...

      As played, I decided to just cbet the flop small to get him to fold overcards. Since I'm not quite used to playing 4bet pots out of position, I'm also not quite sure if this is the right play.

      What's best here?

      Hi TinoLaan,

      Preflop: Given he may seem a bit fishy (bet size, stats) I would not 4-bet bluff. I'd just call.

      Postflop: As played I would also not bet the flop since I'd expect calls from a fishy guy.
