      Hi frazz4,

      Preflop: What do we know about MP2? He looks fishy given his small 3-bet.

      If he is fishy 4-bet is good, otherwise just call.

      As played you are the preflop raiser so why are you checking to him? Cbet for value.

      YE i had about 30-50 hands on him and his VPIP & PFR WERE 25, 30 ISH so lots of action.

      i checked to him because i thought if he has a better hand he wont fold but worse he might bet j,j or 10,10 which he might fold for my raises so kinda playing WAWB.

      You are in a 4-bet pot already with a lot of money invested, 100 BB deep.

      You can definitely get enough value with a bet and if he has a better hand you are losing your stack anyway (for the most part).

      So simply bet (I'd make it $4) and go from there. With such a bet size you can induce lighter calls or raises which is always good in a spot like this.
