      Is it profitable to resteal against this villain?
      I would fold if 4bet, but if called and flop bottom pair,
      should I barrel or aim for cheap showdown?

      I would cBet bigger to call it off when he shoves. I think you play too weaktight postflop when you make loose3bets as you give up so much money in a situation where people (incl. you) are playing looser

      It is 4handed so 3betting is perfectly fine but it also means you should stack off looser to stay profitable

      Best regards,

      on this spot, even he had PP, I have A outs, and he could shove with two high card or draw so calling off is better?
