      hes got 1.1k headsup winnings and plays the $22 level.

      he even said gg wp in chat. :s_cool: , not sure how much I deserve though :D .

      I think I played reasonably though. played small ball and tight oop.

      he 4bet me like it was nobodies business after a while, so I lost all respect for him around the midgame tbh. that culminated in this hand:

      he restole from me last 4 times I 3bet him. He flatted me previously with JJ and AQs. I expected a flip on average tbh. he seemed to be flatting his nut hands and trying to extract value on the flop and turn. I thought it was reasonable to believe he was 4betting some of the hands he did not want to see a flop/showdown with. I would include hands like 66-88 in this. granted bigger Kx hands are in there too, but I expect he would fold out anything under KJ. and probably flat KQs vs the 3bet...

      I think this is the best way to approach him tbh, my stack was dwindling, and Im convinced he had an edge against me.
