      Hi,

      He is never folding when he 4bets to $5 so you get around 12:8 = 40% with A9o

      so even when he shoves light a la:

             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    64.33%  63.15%   1.19% { 22+, ATs+, AJo+, KQo }
      MP3    35.67%  34.48%   1.19% { Ah9d }


      You have to fold


      What I think is a big leak in your game is that you 3bet/4bet/cBet supersmall. Then you get random reactions from your opponent making you do random spewy stuff which is not very good. Stay consistent. I would 3bet to $2.1 & then I know for sure if he shoves that I am beat
