      PokerStars - €0.02 PL Hi FAST (6 max) - Omaha Hi - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 169 BB (VPIP: 26.15, PFR: 17.44, 3Bet Preflop: 8.11, Hands: 198)
      SB: 100 BB (VPIP: 18.69, PFR: 10.27, 3Bet Preflop: 3.54, Hands: 2,604)
      BB: 100 BB (VPIP: 61.31, PFR: 40.15, 3Bet Preflop: 30.69, Hands: 281)
      UTG: 50.5 BB (VPIP: 57.64, PFR: 0.93, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 436)
      Hero (CO): 560.5 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:club: K:diamond: 6:heart: A:club:

      UTG calls 1 BB, Hero raises to 4.5 BB, BTN raises to 12 BB, fold, BB calls 11 BB, UTG calls 11 BB, Hero ??

      SB is the only decent reg. He has 8% 3bet so he has some rundowns in his range. I have a blocker to AAxx. Call for low variance play OTF (but i won't hit so many favorable flops..) or "4bet & gamble" 4 ways?

      If you call, you have nasty situation on the flop. SPR is 2 with BB, 1 with UTG and 3,5 with BTN. And you are going to miss the flop often and on the rest you are not sure where you are with BTN.

      If BTN was 100bb deep this would be easier 4bet. Now with the A blocker I would just 4bet.

      If you just call, what are the flops that you would fold against BTN? Even with call, the money goes in anyway if you estimate that his range is wider than AA. So push your preflop equity and 4bet pre. If he calls, shove any flop.

      If he has AA, smile and reload.

      That's more than you could usually hope for.
