      Hi,


      Fine by me the way you played it.

      If you 4-bet preflop against a 11/6 he'll have a blast with it, since he'll know exactly what do to: fold anything that isn't QQ+/AK and jam those 4 hands in your face, a shove which you'll "have to call" given the money you already put in even tho you're not in good shape at all against his 5-betting range. Against some wilder players this might be profitable, mostly because they'll 3bet/fold a lot more often than a 11/6 will.

      Here I just don't think you need to do that. Taking a flop in position with the standard expectation that if he's bluffing he'll be a "one barrel and done" type of guy looks better to me. Once the flop comes K-high AK gets there so it's usually not worth pursuing.


      Hope it helps.
