      Vilain stats only 165 hands 29/23, wtsd 26, wonsd 56%, 3bet avarge 13.3, and BB 3bet 15. My question is always better play this 4bet 25BB or 4bet all in? Oop i don't like call, this was bad mistake for me pre flop. And too thight for fold river?

      Blind against blind I would 4bet to like $1,50 to get the money in. This way the hand will play easier I think. Now you miss the flop completely and I would check/fold most of the time without any back-up except your over cards to improve your hand.

      Thanks again. 24-25BB raise not enough ,so about 1.25? I know i played with oop, but 1.50 raise he folded all weaker hands and push the better, JJ++ and AK.

      4 betting this every time with the intention of calling a shove. His range is huge in BvB situation.

      If I did call pre (something I would do maybe 15% of the time in a tough game for deception). C/F flop with no BDFD.
