      On this spot,I thought I could even dominate CO's hand so I chose 4bet.

      Hey,

      Those players look pretty loose in a small sample. Meaning CO's 3bet is a bit messy. I think since you block KK/AA, he can't have that many nutty hands so you are at least flipping here in equity. Which is good because then you can get additional profit by fold equity.

      I like your play as I would be shoving as well :)

      Best regards,
      Gerv
