      Hi!

      Villain is 16/12/3.2 with 11% 3b from sb.

      Is it advisable to bluff 4b this kind of villain and is everything else after preflop standard?

      If you´re planing 4-bet/fold KJ I think you are better just calling 3-bet pf and then playing postflop planning stacking off Kxx boards
      Just he can easily shove pf with 88-TT/AQ against which KJ is doing fine after putting in 27% of your stack
      b/c is fine on the flop. i´d only make it 6$ to induce shove smt like QJ or shove hand like 99

      So what do you advise? Not to bluff 4b him(with loose 3b stats from blinds) or even lover my 4b size? Cuz I h8 flatting 3b, I still think it is more EV+ cuz I get enough FE in a long run.
      Now I am not doing that against donks, remember, he is a semigood reg nit/tag and there is only one or two hands he is playing like that, figure out which. :)

      I think the 4bet/f is fine preflop if he 3b light.
      I also think b/c is the best play postflop

      if you don´t expect player to shove light over your 4-bets then 4-bet/folding is fine. Just players would adjust at some time and start shoving lighter over your 4-bets

      About hand: he can have there aces or AK, although not sure he´d c/rai on the flop. Maybe KQ or also AQ/AJ hand

      Don't like the play since your sample size is propably way too small. Don't think that villain with pfr of 12 is actually 3betting you with 11% of hands from sb.

      Hi!

      I believe some aggro nits are capable of defending their blinds on regular basis.
