      villain 43/37 in 180 hands, 5.3 AF, 75% steal

      my question is, how to extract more value? should i have just 5bet shove?

      i thought of just calling so that he could lead again on the flop and i go all-in if there's no Ace. what do you think is the reason he checked?

      should i have checked again the turn to possibly let him lead?

      Hello YinYangS,

      What's the opponents 4bet value? I'd very likely consider even just 5betting and getting it in rather than Calling and trapping unless I know that he can do the 4bets light. On those limits you don't need to play fancy, those opponents are very likely to go broke and easily.

      Best regards.
