      Hi.
      I have a few things to point out.

      1) This guy is Full of it on the BU with 50% 3bet range over 8 times.
      2) I think you should be 4bet bluffing him a lot as part of your basic strategy
      3) If you 4bet him a lot then I think your 4bet here is really standard, if we expect him to 5bet bluff a lot, and jam AK/QQ here for balance

      I think your play is fine with the above dynamic, though given starting positions I am not exactly too keen on stacking off 160bb when hands like QQ/AK may just call the 4bet.

      Are you 4bet bluffing him sometimes?

      Either he never 3b me before or he 3b me when i didn't know how aggro he was, can't recall now, point is i was not playing back at him, i was never in the spot. This was my first 4b against him, which could have been easily a bluff considering how loose he is.

      hmm ok I think given how wide he is, we can just treat this like a late position dynamic. I don't think stacking off here is going to ever be a huge mistake. I just wonder if there is more EV in calling or not. But if he 3bets so much weak hands like AXs or 56s and we make a 4bet, i expect him to call a lot as well with the stack depth. So I think 4bet is fine.
