      I don't use any programs.
      Villain was a fishy TAG. 1st time i saw MR. I didn't know what this means.I assume he maybe do this with SC, PP, Broadway hands so I decided to reraise big because i'm OOP, was pretty aggressive and get more value from decent hands(AJ-AQ, 22-TT). Min 4bet, i assume he will do that with JJ+, AK+, maybe with TT because i was agressive and maybe overplaying his hand.

      Should we shove preflop, we are 152BB deep?

      Flop: check/check, no information.
      Turn: I don't know why i bet here. I think because i wanted to take down pot here (he only folds AK). After MR i assume he will do that with JJ+. 1st i wanted shove but then i thinked better option is calling(maybe fold) so i call!
      River : ???????

      Since it is often AA/KK then I would also prefer just calling pre-flop rather than 5-betting and then facing difficult situation if he shoves.

      I would also b/c turn and c/c river, since I think AK may sometimes play that way and he may also have some worse pp-s like JJ/TT that he might take the same line. Also 5-handed you don´t really get too many QQ vs KK/AA situations and I think MP3 might easily try some sort of bluff there

      best regards,
