  • NL10-SH 4bet sizing multiway preflop

    Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10, $0.02 ante No Limit Hold'em Cash, 4 Players Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite. BTN: $27.74 (277.4 bb) SB: $31.12 (311.2 bb) Hero (BB): $10.25 (102.5 bb) CO: $10.25 (102.5 bb) Preflop: Hero is BB with K K CO raises to $0.30, BTN raises to $1, SB calls $0.95, Hero raises to $2.90, CO folds, BTN calls $1.90, SB calls $1.90 Flop: ($9.08) T A T (3 players) SB checks, Hero checks, BTN bets $4.33, 2 folds Results:

    $9.08 pot ($0.41 rake) Final Board: T A T BTN mucked and won $8.67 ($5.75 net) SB mucked and lost (-$2.92 net) Hero mucked K K and lost (-$2.92 net) [/spoiler] Button is very agressive 37/30/20, and calls my 4bets very wide (called with 56s in one hand). How large should I be 4betting here? Vs this guy I should make it more than standard but Im not sure how large a standard 4bet here would be.

    Hi pocket,

    A standard 4b sizing on 100bb effective, as a general rule of thumb, is about 2.2-x the total size of his 3b (so in this case $2.20). I certainly think that's too small in this situation however, considering that the CO is the original raiser (not us, meaning there is a 3rd player who has shown strength and is still in the hand) and the SB has cold called the $1 (meaning there is a 4th player showing an interest in contesting this pot, and there is more money in the middle now at the point we are 4-betting). Your size of $2.90 is pretty good imo, I like something in the $2.90-$3.25 range, and even a bit bigger if the button is prone to large calling mistakes like you note.
