Even though the player's very LAG, I still fold this before the flop. Once you've made it to that flop... villain's bet enough to commit himself, but if he's not already ahead he's definitely got outs on you.

The problem is that T4o is just such a difficult hand to play - there are very few flops that are going to help you. With a regular suited connector, suited gapper, something like that, I could maybe play back. But T4 just doesn't give you many chances to win the hand.

yeh it's ok to fold the bb once in a while i think. you could certainly have waited for a few more to see if you'd get hu without playing a hand.

Yes I could've but I also knew he had AK - AJ. He woulda played high pocket pair much more aggressive, and always limped with small-medium pocket pair, so I knew I could easily outplay him Post-Flop, which I did.

That makes absolutely no sense. If you knew he had AK-AJ and you knew that you were OOP and facing a 4x BB raise then playing T4o is a terrible choice. I have no clue what on earth you were thinking calling that much of your stack on such a terrible hand. NEVER EVER EVER EVER call that much of your stack off in a SnG unless you want to be tricky with AA/KK. Everything else should be fold or shove. You can't "outplay somebody postflop" when the pot is 3200 and they have about 2400 behind. They are already committed.

This is a bad beat? LOL!:D

The right play is to fold to the raise.

Fold preflop and pick a better spot to play back and defend your blind. The rest has already been said
