      Villian is a good tag, very similar to my own stats. My light 4bet is to check if he is trying to bluff or actually have the nutz, if so I fold to a shove.

      Flop: Its a 4bet pot, I don't have much experience here. In 3bet, I would cbet for sure. I was ranging him AQ+ / JJ+.

      Turn: I check again to see if he wants to bet for value.

      River: I should've have do a 1/2 bet here? I went check/fold here.

      Hello ragney,

      Preflop: I'd say I don't really like the idea that you planned to 4bet him and then if he shoves we fold. If we are going for 4bet, even if it's light then likely also go broke. Otherwise don't 4bet at all.

      As played
      Postflop: Your thoughts are kinda fine, although I'd say that Check/Folding is likely the best option here, since he will most often continue with hands like JJ+ and likely just Check/Fold his weaker ones. Since he should be also scared us going for Check/Raise or something similar. I'd note him also down that he is Calling our 4bet with AJo.

      Best regards.
