      Once we 4-bet we need about 35% equity to call off the shove so we can't really fold.

      So the question really comes down to the 4-bet and the size of it.

      In 6 max games, in squeeze scenarios, even at low limits you can expect people to bluff a lot (when they 3bet squeeze). Thus 4-betting here because a good option because we attack the dead money and against a standard 5-bet shove range of QQ+, AK we still have 39% equity.

      Now, if we want to be able to 4-bet (bluff) and fold we can start making our bets smaller. For example, in this case we could make it even $1.2-$1.3 and this would require you to call off more money and does need more equity.
