What does it mean to 4 bet in poker?

When should you 4-bet?

When and Why You Should Consider a 4-bet

One of the best ways to use a 4-bet is if you have a premium hand or even the “nuts”. When it comes to No Limit Hold’em, it’s always best to play your premium hands strongly rather than slow-playing in a bid to trap your opponents.

How much is a 4-bet?

Usually, a 4bet should be about 2.25x the 3bet size. Therefore, assuming hero open-raised 3bb and villain 3bet to 10bb, a good amount to 4bet would be about 22.5bb total. It’s not uncommon for players to simply double a 3bet amount when 4betting in position, and re-raise to 2.25x when out of position.

What is a 5 bet in poker?

The term 5-bet refers to the third re-raise in a betting round, usually seen preflop. For example, suppose you raise to $10 preflop with $1/$2 blinds. If a player re-raises, that’s a 3-bet. If you re-raise again, that’s a 4-bet. If a player re-raises again, that’s a 5-bet.

Should you bet 4 10s?

What hand do you call 3 bets?

Another way to look at it: The best hands to three-bet light with are at the very top of your folding range. Say, for example, that a good player in the cut-off raises and the worst possible hand you could profitably call with is A9o. Your best possible three-bet light hand would then be A8o.
