      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: I'd 4-bet the regular size of 20-25 BB here. If his raise would of been 7 I don't mind making it 16-18. With 16 BB you are just min raising there and you'll make your postflop a bit trickier to play. If we only 4-bet for value in these spots it may be ok because we get him to call really wide but are we really 4-betting only for value? I would have quite a few 4-bet bluffs in these positions and based on the action.

      Postflop: Looks fine to me. I don't like checking back the turn nor can we bet/fold. I think he can have more Ax hands because of our small preflop 4bet and some have FD so he can go with them.
