      Couple of things here:

      1. Thoughts Pre-flop when re-raised bet by an early position raiser - I wasn't totally loving my hand, was calling and playing OOP the best play?

      2. Post flop, I shoved as I believed he could have a Pre-Flop value range 10's+, AQ+ that may struggle to fold. He may also have to call if he hit a decent draw. The issue OOP is that if I call & check to him on the turn, he will check back too much?

      Hi Philfox,

      Preflop: I don't like calling here versus the 4-bet. We already invested 20% of our stack so we should go with our hand preflop.

      If you just call to setmine you are not getting the odds.

      As played we only have 3/4 pot size bet left if we call so it's not like we can't get the money in on the river. We don't really need to protect at all and if he has AK we may let him catch an A or K or just try to bluff us again. So I'd call.
