1. My pre-flop play was bad?
2. Call one more on flop?

Villain only 2 hands, VPIP=50, PRF=50. He might be a agro, but only two hands so no way to know. His all raises were fast.

Preflop: I should have folded to 4B I think or have I trusted my gut feeling that he was an agro, then to go AI. Another choice would have been to just call his 3B. <- These all would have been better than just calling?

Flop: I was facing a bluf, AA, AK, KQ or KKK. So I don’t have choice but fold? I could have raised him though

Hi brave,

I think folding or 5-betting all in preflop are the best choices here, calling his 4-bet leaves us out of position in a bloated pot and it's easy to get lost on how to proceed. Note you can't call a 3b because the villain did not 3b... he raised, you 3b, he 4b, and you called that.

As played flop is an easy fold imo.

Hi Dave,

That is so illogical I read about it and the blind is called the first bet. I 2-bet (raise) then he 3B (re-raise). But this can not be, so blind is not counted? So, I bet, he raise, I re-raise (3b).

After flop this same would go 1. bet 2. raise (2-bet) 3. re-raise (3-bet).



Great to hear I did the right choice finally, even though I felt totally owned there.

If he limped, than you're correct, but he raised. He was the 1st to raise (2bet), you 3bet him, and he 4bets.

Right... BB is the first bet, V5 raised (2nd bet), you reraised (3b).
