      Preflop: I opted to 4b shove since I didn't want to have to play OOP against an aggressive player in case the flop comes A/K high I would not know what to do.

      888 Poker - $0.06 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      CO: $8.08 22/20/7/9/33/572 - TAGish
      BTN: $8.30
      SB: $6.00
      BB: $1.31
      UTG: $1.88
      Hero (MP): $6.16

      SB posts SB $0.03, BB posts BB $0.06

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.09) Hero has Q:heart: Q:spade:

      UTG calls $0.06, Hero raises to $0.24, CO raises to $0.65, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $6.16, CO calls $5.51

      Flop: ($12.47, 2 players) J:heart: 7:heart: 4:heart:

      Turn: ($12.47, 2 players) 9:spade:

      River: ($12.47, 2 players) 9:heart:

      CO shows K:heart: A:diamond: (Flush, King High) (Pre 43%, Flop 49%, Turn 30%)
      Hero shows Q:heart: Q:spade: (Flush, Queen High) (Pre 57%, Flop 51%, Turn 70%)
      CO wins $11.74

      Hello muel294,

      Depends a lot how loose he is from CO, his 3bet overall might come from the blinds. :) But of course if you assume he is 3betting looser then getting it in is fine. Although I don't understand your direct shove, you are just getting called from strong hands, you don't even allow him shove with worse.

      Best Regards.

      well i figured his 3b of an MP o/r from the CO indicates genuine strength. His fold to 4b stat was 3/6 but as you say the majority of his 3b's come from the blinds or are against CO and BU o/r's.

      but as for 4 shove I assume that 2.5x'ing and calling a shove would be better for my overall game since I want to 4b bluff sometimes and if I only 4b shove QQ+ and AK then I am polarizing my range so much that my opp's should be able to adjust very easily.
