      iPoker - £0.20 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 3 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Villain is 35/26/Afq:42 with 61% fold to 3bet, 83% fold to 3bet from late position, 27% 4bet over 608 hands.

      He did 4bet/call Q4s vs me in previous session.

      I did 3bet him a lot during this session (hero's 3bet:9/42) and he always folded, but lastly he adapted (or not due to sample size of this session??) and began to 4bet (the last 2 times I 3beted him he 4beted, so this is Villain's third in a row 4bet 3/6). Is it a good spot to 5bet/shove, or i am burning money?

      ps: I was loosing 3 bi in this session (some coolers and bad beats), so I posted this hand to figure out if I was inclined
      to make this move bc of tilt, or bc it was the logical move to make.

      SB: £20.00
      Hero (BB): £20.55
      BTN: £21.64

      SB posts SB £0.10, Hero posts BB £0.20

      Pre Flop: (£0.30) Hero has 4:spade: 4:club:

      BTN raises to £0.60, fold, Hero raises to £1.90, BTN raises to £5.80, Hero raises to £20.55, BTN calls £14.75

      Flop: (£41.20, 2 players) 9:club: Q:heart: 5:diamond:

      Turn: (£41.20, 2 players) 2:heart:

      River: (£41.20, 2 players) 8:heart:

      you don´t have to turn 44 into semibluff on the BB to then 5-bet shove against his possible 4-bet. I would prefer just flatting pf and then either playing straight forward or making moves postflop.
      I personally think his 4-bet value range is a lot widened given your history and he would likely 4-bet/call 88+, AJ+ and maybe KQ against what 44 is doing quite ok;

      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      88-AA, AJ-AK, KQ 60.66% 657,627,252 6,015,516
      44 39.34% 425,382,576 6,015,516
      especially if you think he may 4-bet/fold, although if he is 4-bet/calling with Q4s, then I think you doesn´t really have that much fold equity pf.
      But if I take top 20% that he may easily go with then you have decent equity and should either shove pf or call and then shove any flop:

      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      20% 55.29% 1,478,662,836 19,433,376
      44 44.71% 1,193,645,676 19,433,376

      best regards,
