      Villain (VPIP/PFR/AG) (21/16/12)

      Decided to 4-bet because i was running pretty hot on that table and was playing a bunch of hands lately and the villain looked like req and his 3-bet was 10.8 ... Now after the call of my 4-bet i got a little scared and wouldnt have cbet if only villain wouldnt had snapchecked. I asumed it as a mistake of him, when calling the 4-bet and just playing FitorFold on the flop (Been there myself some times :f_biggrin: )

      Running hot and being active is NOT a reason to 4bet A9s, not at all!!! Being super-tight for the past 30 minutes is!

      Now, having been blessed with that flop, you have to get it in for sure. You have at least 9 outs (12 most of the times actually) against his calling range, but he's not calling you all the time anyway. so you definitely want to get it in here.

      Yeah, running super hot and starting to play worse hands than usual = tilt. So just fold it. As played, you have to get it in on that flop!

      Get it in on that flop and I wouldn't 4bet A9s usually even if he's playing back from blinds a lot, because it's easily dominated and you may have a lot of trouble later, but if he's capable of folding a lot of his 3bets - it may be doable, but if you are running hot they may notice you are raising, 3betting and being aggro a lot, so may not give enough credit to your 4bet. 10.8% 3bet doesn't mean much without sample size.

      I agree with the previous posters, who all said useful things to some extent. Just don't 4-bet it given your image and as played, jam it in with a smile.

      Hope it helps.
