      Hey Kiwicoach,

      Hand looks totally fine.

      In generally you may want to be a little more cautious than usual against 4bb opens however.

      cool, thanks. And by cautious do you mean that 4BB raises from the CO are less likely to be steal hands but legit hands? Or do you mean I should be more conservative with my 3-bet size?

      Yeah, I mean the 4x opens are less likely to be steal hands and more likely to be premiums.

      It's worth paying attention to see if they always make it 4x or whether they only do it very rarely. If they only do it rarely then you probably don't even want to bluff vs 4x opens.
