      His 3b was 13% so i decide to 4b bluff, but when he calls i wasn't sure wether to carry it though or not so decide to check, what should i have done?

      tough spot I hate these ones.

      I think you did the right thing. his range must have a lot of pairs, probably AK too. AK is folding anyway so you might as well check it.

      once he checks back the flop and turn he's probably got a pair lower that QQ, or AK and I doubt most people will fold an overpair here so its way ahead/way behind.

      I don't think someone who calls a 4bet with a mid-pair would ever fold it here so there's no point betting

      I'm really unsure, mostly just posting this so I can come back and look at the judges response later and compare with mine

      4bet is really small, and I don't like it much in general. Are you really balanced here (especially if it's Rush)? It's so easy for an aggro player who's squeezing here to think "WTF is this s***, he never has the nuts, so I'll just ship my AJs/88 in there and hope he'll fold" (Trust me, been there, done that ;) ).

      Postflop you can't do too much I guess.

      oh ye ? most ppl see that min4bet and insta fold QQ in rush...so ..:) ) the min4bet is fine but u gotta bet that flop somehow or if u dont, then i would 100% bet the river representing the flush.

      problem with 4-betting 22 is that you don´t have any blockers to big hands , you´re putting 30% of your stack with very marginal hand and if get called then don´t really know what to do postflop.
      A lot easier option would be just fold pf or if you make these plays also with QQ+ then I guess it is fine.
      If you check then you´re going to c/f. he may check down smt like AQ/AK if he didn´t shove these hands pf, but I think shoving is also ok option. You ahve shown a lot of strength pf and he may easily fold there pp-s
