With what range of hands does my opponent smooth call the flop then 4bet into me?

No reads. I'm new to the table and yet to play a hand.

I honestly can't figure if this is a 'Spinal Tap'esque piss take, or if his music operates on a much higher plane then my brain can process...

I was Facebook-surfing some friends photos and stumbled across this.

Definitely a 'wow' moment.

City to Surf 2010

I sign up for this 'fun' run almost every year. It's not that I'm a mad runner but I use it as motivation to get off my lazy ass over winter and try to stay fit. This year my goal was 80 minutes which I squeaked in with 78 minutes. Next year, the goal is 75 minutes so I can start in the lead group and avoid crowds. Without doubt, one of the highlights was spotting Napolean Dynamite in the crowd.
