      Poker Stars, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players


      Hero (CO): $81.12 (324.5 bb) 28/22/1.7/14.8/80/50
      BTN: $52.80 (211.2 bb) 33/29/7.0/28.6/50/52 3-Bet from BU 60%(5)
      SB: $11.48 (45.9 bb)
      BB: $25 (100 bb)
      UTG: $9.70 (38.8 bb)
      MP: $24.13 (96.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q A
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, BTN raises to $2.50, 2 folds, Hero raises to $6, BTN folds

      I'm not even 4-Betting as a Bluff here and am doing it for value against this guy but the question is against a deepstacked guy like this and being as deep as I am should I call a 5-Bet shove from him? With regular stacks I'll be more comfortable doing this but with our stack sizes this could become really ugly.

      Results: $5.35 pot
      Hero mucked Q A and won $5.35 ($2.85 net)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Pretty standard I would say for the given information what is around. Especially if he was 3betting a lot. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.

      Do you think we could call a 5bet shove with AQ against him more than 200bb deep? Yes, he seems to spew around with 3bets, and i agree that it is a good spot to fight back, but i dont think we could call a shove here this deep without the information that he's able to go broke light preflop. So basically it should be a 4bet-bluff.

      Yep, my plan would be to 4bet-bluff here. His continue range will be mainly KK+ here as I would normally expect that without any other reads. He will have really tough time to even continue with QQ/JJ or whatsoever hands.
