MP: $95.77 (VPIP: 9.31, PFR: 6.21, 3Bet Preflop: 5.49, Hands: 584)
Hero (CO): $49.85
BTN: $52.08 (VPIP: 15.65, PFR: 12.17, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 117)
SB: $98.50 (VPIP: 18.01, PFR: 13.71, 3Bet Preflop: 6.41, Hands: 757)
BB: $54.04 (VPIP: 16.79, PFR: 13.14, 3Bet Preflop: 1.92, Hands: 140)
UTG: $50.75 (VPIP: 16.25, PFR: 11.25, 3Bet Preflop: 3.45, Hands: 81)

SB posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

Pre Flop: (pot: $0.75) Hero has J:heart: A:club:

fold, fold, Hero raises to $1.25, fold, fold, BB raises to $4.50, Hero calls $3.25

Flop: ($9.25, 2 players) 7:club: 2:club: 6:spade:
BB bets $5.00, Hero calls $5.00

Turn: ($19.25, 2 players) 5:diamond:
BB bets $13.50, fold,

This one should be easy one.
In my opinion I have two options 4-bet or fold.Right?
On flop another mistake by me i should have fold to his c-bet.
Anyway is the best way to fold this hands to his 3bet in this situation and against this opponent or it is a clear 4bet spot?

Hi rudar,

I think all 3 could potentially be options depending on the villain since we have position. Out of position I would lean towards 4b or folding.

In this hand I think we have a pretty easy fold tbh. The data on villain is limited, only 140 hands, but he's done nothing for 3-betting thus far in that span, is tight over all, and has made a large sizing. I would just give him credit and move on. I think we should only continue (via call or 4b) when the villain has some lite 3b range.
