      I found my self in a difficult situation with a over pair. He CC my 4bet with probably ATs+ AJ+ 10+ My thinking is if a Ace or King come on the flop or turn I will have to give up. Should I just Shove the turn here and hope he did not cold call my pre flop 4 bet with 99.I could avoid a lot of confusion by doing so. I Half way through the hand I began to think maybe he is suffering form fancy play syndrome and had KK or AA. How do you guys play these hands?

      I have moved your hand to our hand discussion board, because it’s fits better there.
      I would 4bet a little bit more out of position pre-flop. If you 4bet like 50c and Cbet around the same size you can shove the turn most of the time. As played you can’t do much else then folding the river on the shove donk bet of villain.

      Cheers,

      Bet larger on the turn and prepare to size your bet on the river

      as played he will def hvae some AX due to your small sizing. You can only beat him if he turns a hand like 88 into a bluff so by default I think people are underbluffing here at these limits
