      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: You 4-bet bluff against a short stack, that's usually not a good thing, especially after you commit more than 33% of your stack. The problem with mid stacks is that they also stack off lighter which means that we don't have the proper FE.

      Here you risk 8.5 to collect 5.25 and thus you need 62% FE.

      You get 32% pot odds or so and your hand has 22% equity vs JJ+, AK.

      But if you add a looser range it gets closer (but not by much): 88+,AQs+,KQs,AQo+ 28%
