    Like that call/4-bet preflop line from the CO...I think he was dead-set on getting the money in. It reminds me of the old Super System limp/reraise. There is such a good chance that you're up against a pair here. Also, you're only going to draw out 1/4 of the time (A or K pair), so right there, you have to decide if AK is a bluff-catcher (he can draw out too, if he's behind, so you lose a little equity there). Pot odds are 3:1, so you only have to win 1/4 of the time, but still...I guess AK is in his range too, so you might be fighting for a chop.

    What can the CO have that you beat? Maybe he got itchy enough to 4-bet AQ/KQ/AT. Even AJ/KJ/QJ is way ahead of you now (and AJ or KJ would have you reverse-dominated even if you hit). Other than that, if he's on a stone-cold bluff, I think you just have to wait for a better spot to snap him off. Do you have any info on him?

    Where is this Yatahay network?

    “Hero raises to 5 BB”

    There is your problem. Raised too small and got stuck in an odd situation.

    Pop it to 10-12bb. You’ll define your hand and he’ll shove or call pre. Decisions are easier though.

    The CO could be running a Bluff cause you raised weak. Or could have a mid to high pair that was trapping. No way to know.

    If you raised small to induce a crazy bluff, you have to call flop. Maybe he spazzed out w/ Q9s
