      Hello alexgrapid,

      Do you understand that you somehow are turning your hand into bluff? :) Since I don't think that you plan to Call his shove or 4bet there. Therefore it's kinda close, sometimes I even just prefer folding there, although when he did play back on us a lot of times then just Calling would be an option.

      Although it depends a lot on the opponent, sometimes I might even 3bet and get it in there as well when I see him doing such raises with a very wide range as draws/overcards or whatsoever. But for those kind of moves are reads/stats needed and according to his stats I don't really see him doing that so often. Also next time would be good if you mention how many hands you have on him.

      Best regards.
