$10 NLHE Full Ring: Fishy flat of 4 bet???
This is Zoom, full ring, so I don't have a read on my opponents, and no prior history to the best of my knowledge against this specific opponent.
So I was mulling this one over. I think it's fine to 3-bet my Queens here in position because I probably don't get as much respect for a 3-bet on the button in some instances. I won't always 3-bet, but in this case, UTG+2 makes a big 4 bet. Now, at this stange, I'm putting villain on a very narrow range of hands, AA, KK, AK. I don't think too many will 4-bet anything worse than that the majority of the time. I decide to flat.
As you'll see on the flop, I flop a set. Without getting into the outcome, because it's really irrelevant here, is:
Flatting a 4-bet in position a good play? In other words, is there ANY reason to think I should fold this hand? Keep in mind, I'm severely polarizing villain's range to 3 specific hands.
So I'm set mining feeling fairly certain that I am almost always behind here. Putting it that way, I'm not convinced I'm making a good play here.
