      I 3bet flop because I thought from what I know about this guy that he is a thinking player and is capable or perceiving a 3bet on this flop as a bluff.

      That being said I am kinda lost after he 4bets not knowing how to proceed because:
      -if I shove I fold out all his bluffs and I don't want that
      -if I call he is not likely to continue bluffing but I give him a free card and I also can't play check on the turn as he can check back once again
      -m5bet :D ?

      Hi.

      When he puts half his stack in, I really see no reason to slowplay. Just jam it in and hope you dominate his trips + worse kicker.

      Hey,

      You think he is never bluffing here? I mean it doesn't really make sense to 4bet for value :D and I see him capable of just playing back vs my bluffy looking 3bet.

      Or you just think that by calling I say clearly to him that I have a hand and that he has no chance of bluffing me of it ?
