      Hello QubaBuba,

      Preflop: I'd rather do it 4xBB.
      Postflop: And I don't really see many hands what we actually beat when he picks such a line while we have shown 2 streets of strength. Usually it's a very strong hand and therefore I might even fold it on river unless I know the opponent better.

      Best regards.
