      saw flop

      SB ($25) new villain at the table, unknown
      BB ($27.89)
      UTG ($28.70)

      Total pot: $50.25 | Rake: $2.51

      Do you approve this play?
      I wanted to 4bet/fold but he called,
      I check behind on flop to induce bluffs? Are there some bluffs to be induced?
      I didn't think about this very much, but bluffs are all I beat, so should I call insted of raising or is fold better?

      first of all:
      I wouldn't 4-bet with KQo at all.
      Just call in position and play carefully even if you hit.
      If villain is tight, you can even fold easily preflop.
      As played: Chb flop for potcontrol is fine.
      When he bets near potsize on turn i fear that he has KK, AA, QQ, AQ or AKs quite often. So I'd shove too, but I wouldn't assume to be ahead very often.

      What did he have? AA?

      Best regards,

      Hi Anin, nice comment on the hand :)
      I will post result after judge comments this.
      I was just implementing light 4-betting into my game, but I painfully discovered, that against unknown villains it is better to just fold or call IP :)

      I see no problem to 4-bet/fold KQo if you think a call is not a good alternative.

      But when you bluff-4-bet you need reads, against an unknown player its always hard stuff.

      As played I like bet/broke on the flop, this is no spot for bluff induce.
