      One of my goals today was to find more spots to be aggressive in position preflop. MP has stats of 75/50 but only after 4 hands, CO 31/13 after 45. I suspect the CO is trying to iso 3 bet the uber lag and I 4-bet bluff here IP. I obv end up folding to push, but I'm wondering if the play and logic is acceptable, or just plain spewy!?

      Hero (BTN): 138.25 BB

      CO: 131.25 BB (VPIP: 31.11, PFR: 13.33, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 45)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 4:diamond: A:diamond:

      fold, MP raises to 2 BB, CO raises to 7.5 BB, Hero raises to 26 BB, SB calls 25.5 BB, fold, fold, CO raises to 131.25 BB and is all-in, fold, SB calls 1.5 BB and is all-in

      Use a hand like KQ that you cannot call with but has more blockers. Cold 4bet bluffing at NL4 is sometimes doable but unnecessary to crush. I would recommend against it and fixing the basics of reasons for betting, calculating equity in play, player types and exploiting the most common here: loose passive.
