Anyone care to come up with a theorem name for these plays?
So I am reviewing some old 50NL hand analysis and I ran across this hand
from May of last year. In the following example, the villains were listed as very fishy the 54/40/2 type.
Poker Stars, $0.25/$0.50 NL Hold'em Cash Game, 7 Players

MP2: $54.85 (109.7 bb)
MP3: $49.75 (99.5 bb)
CO: $57.70 (115.4 bb)
Hero (BTN): $63.60 (127.2 bb)
SB: $25.80 (51.6 bb)
BB: $38.20 (76.4 bb)
MP1: $16.60 (33.2 bb)
: Hero is BTN with K♣
MP1 raises to $2
, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $2, CO folds, Hero raises to $8
, 2 folds, MP1 calls $6, MP3 calls $6
: ($24.75) 6♥
9♦ (3 players)
MP1 bets $1
, MP3 calls $1, Hero raises to $6
, MP1 raises to $8.60 and is all-in
, MP3 raises to $13.60
Given that hero has top pair on the flop and the nonsensical limping/betting that has preceeded, many of us would choose to shove here. Would anyone disagree and apply the following thought to this situation?
"When the flop has been four bet it is safe to say that top pair top kicker is no longer good no matter the bet sizing and villain type." This is a rule of thumb that my experience stands by and I am sure someone has described this much more eloquently than I have. Is there a name for such a theorem?
