      Hmm. Maybe you can fold at the last line there but I dont think so.

      Flop bet is under half pot - lift that a little. 2/3rds to 3/4 pot is a better zone to be in. You want to punish people who draw often, and the higher your bets as a % of the pot, the higher your profits will be flushing stations.

      As played I like 4 betting this flop but im unsure if id play 4bet-fold or 4bet-shove. We dont have any reliable stat on MP1 so we need to treat him as unknown.

      I think I am stacking off here top 2.

      Can you ever fold it? Given the results, why would you ever want to fold it? You got 2 outed :) Thats poker. Try not to let the results be your focus; instead you should focus on your decisions. In this hand you got all in with a 95% win; thats awesome! If we could do that most hands we could all retire and play poker on cruise ships for a living :)

      Like Jaissica said, c-bet bigger to begin with, after that it's fine to go broke. It's really freaking hard for him to have a hand that beats you, and unknowns could easily overplay stuff like AQ/AK, i'm not folding. By the way villain did the 4-betting, i'm assuming Jaissica was talking about 3-bet/fold and 3-bet/shove lines.

      Hope it helps.
