  • 25NLH ZOOM A4s from the Button

    Hi all! 25NL Zoom Villain 4 seems to be recreational because of his stack size. Preflop i called a 3bet of 3x after a limp of villain 4 in postion and he 4 bets . The initial raiser calls and i called also because of Pot adds and position + my hand plays very well multiway. I flop the nuts flush draw and everybody checks to me.I checked back because of keeping all 3 villains in and to see a free card.(It is ok to do this?) The turn flushed me and the villain 4 bets 1/2 pot.The other villain folds and i just call because i thought he has a hand like AQ,AJ with the intention of bluffing the Q. The river pairs the board and the way he played seems to be a fullhouse. But i thought there are so many hands he could do this (recreational player) and that hand are not sets. Have I done it OK?

    Hi sharp,

    The first raise isn't a 3-bet (it's the 2nd bet), a re-raise is the 3-bet, then a re-reraise is a 4-bet.

    I think your preflop actions are fine... I am leery of a rec player limp-reraising like this, but the raise is small enough and V5 coming along, plus having position, makes the call of his 3-bet ok imo.

    On the turn I prefer to put him all in... I believe his range rates to be strong (so not folding), and a 4th diamond might kill your action unless he's got the king.

    As played, definitely call off on the river IMO.
