      Villain - 17/16/3/25/206 hands 4% (3/69) 3bet%

      I have recently switched to 6-max and I'm still trying to adjust.

      Should I 4bet at all? If so 2.5x bet/call,bet fold or 4bet shove?

      If I 2.5X it and he 5bets all in I am flipping at best vs his stats right?
      If I 4bet shove we get him to fold sometimes and pick up the dead money, so i felt this was best.

      BUT

      I had notes that this particular villain will stack off w/ top pair (good kicker) in most scenarios (not just 3bet pots) and he wasnt often folding to c-bets....so is there an argument for calling if he is a bit of a station postflop?

      you can´t continue 3-bet/folding so fighting back hand that has so much value pf I would prefer 4-betting that I might also do wider range than AK+, TT+ and sometimes expect him shoving smt like AQ or even some random suited connector type hands

      If I 2.5X it and he 5bets all in I am flipping at best vs his stats right?
      - mostly yes, but he may also shove that spot AQ

      I had notes that this particular villain will stack off w/ top pair (good kicker) in most scenarios (not just 3bet pots) and he wasnt often folding to c-bets....so is there an argument for calling if he is a bit of a station postflop?
      - since you miss 2/3 times I would rather 4-bet being oop, ip you can call more, since then you can also float him on low dry boards
      BUt if you call pf then you should play aggressively your hand postflop, so instead of c/c flop and then c/c him down, I´d prefer c/r on Kxx or Axx boards and stack his tp hands with worse kickers
