      Hero ?


      Well i cant fold to every 3bet and i cant call oop with kq so i bluff 4bet basically
      now if i get flattet and a King comes on the flop id probably b/f cause few people would continue with less than AK here.
      IF the Q hits as its been here, i dont think that flatting with AQ is as likely so i want to go broke and wonder if i should c/r or b/broke


      what u think of my "considerations" Oo

      I think AQ is one of the more likely hands he is flatting. I put him on AQ/AK, TT/JJ, maybe slowplaying AA. That means if Q hits you are in trouble, and if a K hits you are in trouble. I would fold to his 3-bet, after just 44 hands against this guy balancing lines isnt really an issue.

      As played I b/f flop, I dont think your hand is good enough to go broke in a 4-bet pot and he is only putting his money in with better hands.

      you can´t fold tptk in 4-bet pot, so I´d b/c flop, since I´d expect him to shove worse hands than yours, like TT/JJ, some worse Qx hands

      i dont have tptk, and if he has hit his toppair its most likely that its better than mine :(
      i dont think balancing is unimport because u have only like 50hands

      So difficult hand if you ask me i think that the only hand you are currently ahead is AK.

      U just have 44 hands of him but i think those 4 bet calls IP are usually pretty strong.

      You have initiative so your can cbet here but u are pot commited then.

      Very difficult spot. U can shove but i think u are way behind in almost every case except AK.


      So if you take line c/r or b/c result is the same.

      If you are way ahaed fold eqity is pretty high otherwise there is no fold equity at all.

      right, meant tpgk, but most of the times people are shoving AK, so I´d not be too worried that you´re dominated there
