Villain: 31/27 3Bet: 17% (333 hands)

I took a very passive line in this hand. Is this the best way to keep the pot under control and allow him to bluff his Ax hands?

Should I be more aggressive at some point to get value from my hand vs draws or lower PPs?

BvB we should be getting this in pre at 25nl.

Since our range is so capped the river it's a snap call if he bets.

Really even vs an unkown?

Yes. You need TT in your range to balance out 4bet bluffing.

At 25nl TT+ AQ+ is standard BvB.

Hi Andy,

Blind v blind I don't mind 4-betting and getting it in like birdayy said, but would caution against the use of the words "should at 25NL" as though this is automatic... there's a lot of value to be had post flop too, and either line is going to be profitable here. Sometimes flatting is more so. It's ok to take standard lines, just be careful not to cross the bridge into what I call robot poker and always do the "standard" thing.

In this specific case vs. this villain's wild stats, I think we do better 4-betting simply because he's so out of line (and definitely am comfortable stacking off, although it's actually quite thin imo when we get stacks in... his 5B range is likely much tighter than his wild opens and 3b's. The bulk of our profit is coming from his 3b/folds and 3b/calls, not his stack offs). birdayy's point about balance is right, with a wild 3-bettor blind v blind one adjustment to counter that is 4b more, so we can increase our value range in conjunction with our bluff range to accomplish this and not become exploitable.

As played I totally agree on check/snap call.
