      Hey,

      Villain plays 24/22 reg 45% on Bu open.

      I feel like I am losing a lot of money in these spots on NL20. I think it's pretty standard spot to go broke.
      Normally you'd say I have about 50% equity against a range of TT+ AQo+

      But I think on these limits it's more like QQ+ AK. Against this range I only have about 40%. I'm not even sure about QQ/AK because I've seen these been called a lot. And then I only have 20%.

      So is this still a standard spot on this limits while the opponents only shove a narrow range? Or what else is there to do about this? Thx.

      nh. I can't see any other way I could play this hand without more info.

      1- You are shoving, not him. So sometimes villain can bluff4bet/fold there and you win without showdown.
      2- You are not even 100BB deep.

      4-handed AK is too strong and if you really don´t have any reads that player would only 4-bet/call KK+ I think better is to shove there than fold or call.
