      My preflop 4bet call is little bad i think?
      Standard is 5bet call vs unknown.
      But postflop is ok this line?

      Hi Urmo,

      Considering that villain is min raising and that we are in steal/resteal positions we can expect villain to 4-bet bluff a lot here (even with this size).

      Thus I would love to just 5bet small and get it in (we can make it smaller like $6-$6.5 to induce). Alternatively we can overbet 5bet shove and make it look like AK and maybe he'll call weaker pairs (if he 4-bets them).

      A ton of our money will be made when he folds to our 5-bet and then when he does call/shove we still have decent equity against his possible range.

      As played I'd prefer a bigger raise on the flop, something like $9 or so and then shipping the turn.
