      fold to steal in bb 80%
      wtsd 20

      i think calling prf is the better. folding is not an option since i'm ahead to his range. and going all in prf with AQ doesn't seem very nice. neither 4betting/folding.

      on flop i believe i'm still ahead. and if i'm not, i might even push his PP out of the pot with a float, as he has a low wtsd.

      on turn, he bets 3/4 of the pot. i don't think he would do this with a K, it looks like he's trying to push me out of the pot. i mean, if he really wanted to get me all in, betting half the pot would be enough to push on the river.

      do you think i did right?

      shove turn is fine but I think you maximize your EV by just calling turn and calling river shove on any card. This way he woul bluff hands that has very often close to 0 equity
      PF you can 4-bet or just call, floating flop is fine, although just with 6 outs that might also not be good I think you can also fold there

      This guy 3bets with 14% of his hands. So he's bound to 3bet way looser from BB in BU vs BB situations. I think you should just 4bet/shove vs this guy preflop.
