      Hi,


      Unless he has J9 or Tx the board can't really become ugly for you - meaning either it kills your hand or it makes it scarier for him to call down - so i think flatting the 3bet there is fine. Especially since your first raise was smallish and could induce a 3bet from crap hands on such a board, so giving him another chance to shove a bluff when he puts you on J9 is probably worth not protecting against everything in that spot.

      4betting isn't horrible by any means.


      Hope it helps.
