    Hello guys!
    I got a tough spot in blind vs blind battle. Sample on the opponent is small, he was hiding himself from search and I would assume that he is a reg.
    BB stats: VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, AGG: 2, 3BET: 16.7(18), Hands: 34

    Preflop: KTo is a standart open and the opponent raised from BB. I think he can do this with a wide range and I decided to 4bet as a bluff in this spot. He called.

    Flop: So I floped a top pair and my decision was to value bet / bet for protection vs his Ax combos (not sure is it a good decision here? Maybe is it better to x/c once and give up?). And he shoved, I was getting 2.31:1(30%) odds to call here, but I was really guessing what he can have here. Against this range 77+,ATs+,ATo I have like 31% of equity. So what range would you give for the villain on the flop and would you call here?

    Hey Stylo

    My guess is that this
    Flop: So I floped a top pair and my decision was to value bet / bet for protection
    Is a wrong assumption. You are not value betting much here, let alone protecting. BB is 3 betting, assume a strong range here, especially from unknown.

      I'd snap fold and risk fracturing my wrist in going so.

        I doubt that he has a range that wide to 3b pre so i would have just folded as he is basically unknown but it would be interesting to see how you should be playing this spot vs a true 16% 3b range and an aggressive player post flop.

          Hi ImStylo,

          34 hands is really not a sample size we could deduce much from. Also we cannot assume hit total 3bet % in this spot. I would look at how much villain 3bets vs SB and also his fold to steal % before I decide to 4bet bluff here. Standard play I suppose would be to fold to 3bet. As played, should be an easy fold after our cbet gets raised. 4bet pot with a pair of Ten just won't cut it.
