      SB: $44.75 (89.5 bb)
      BB: $50 (100 bb)
      UTG: $199.75 (399.5 bb)
      MP: $50 (100 bb)
      Hero (CO): $60.06 (120.1 bb)
      BTN: $32.96 (65.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with :Ks: :Ac:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, BTN raises to $3.50, 2 folds, Hero raises to $10, BTN calls $6.50

      Flop: ($20.75) :4s: :4c: :7d: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $19.71, Hero folds


      Preflop: Openning for value. BTN is most likelly a fish, with 64bb stack and stats of 42/17 in 12 hands. Decided to 4bet for value, but he called.

      Flop: I think on this board I can maybe just check/call (shove in this case vs his size) because expect him to have enough worse A-highs or random bluffs. His betting range is probably alot wider then a calling range in this situation. That's why I think check/calling is better than betting. Still, I decided to check/fold because am not sure of calling and would probably be close anyway.

      I c/r that flop ai, one thing you forgot to mention is you have some outs vs pps. IP you can 4b a bit smaller (somewhat around $9)

      Yes, I forgot that! About the size, I know the standard would be around 2,5x OOP, but I tried to give him a better price to shove.

      If I may express my opinion on an NL50 hand :f_biggrin: I actually like the larger 4bet sizing against a fish with midstack. You make it easier for yourself to go allin and your equity against his range is high enough. But I would consider myself committed even if he calls, especially on this flop. I like your check OTF, you give him the opportunity to bluff the bunch of air he might have. So in this spotlight and considering some outs against some pocket pairs, I would prefer calling his (almost) shove. Or check/raise and put him all in actually.
