Default Re: It\'s your move, 20/40 online

In a 4 handed game, you are probably giving up a lot of value not 3-betting preflop, even against a very good player. Against a very tight player you might not want to, but otherwise I don't think your arguments for not 3-betting are very convincing.

On the turn, I think you have a clear call. But against an aggressive preflop raiser, who is likely to represent the ace, I might be tempted to just check-call. Of course this risks giving a free card to a hand with overcards. But if you think your opponent will bet often enough, and sometimes have you beat, this becomes a case of wanting to check a hand with outs.
