      Hero wins $12.55

      He was obviously on a 4bet bluff here, but that was not what I put him on. I also figured since it's a steal/resteal situation he could go broke w QQ+ and AK here. I was almost certain he would 6bet after I 5bet here. How often do you think this is a 4bet bluff in this situation? Obviously a calldown might be better then.

      Imo your 5-bet is a littlebit too big.
      I would make it 12$, since then he can continue ip a lot wider hand range than just JJ+/AK
      Although just calling isn´t also bad. Then I would c/r small any flop and play for stacks
