      Hi Straywolf,

      Preflop: 150 BB deep here are we 4-betting as a bluff or value? I'd assume it's a bluff?

      I think we can bet/fold flop 1/2 pot which only has to work 1/2 of the time. He has AK/AQ a fair amount as well.

      So are we going broke 150 BB deep if he shoves? Have you seen him get it in light?

      no and no

      I was thinking he has wide 3betting range, so i think AQ does pretty good against that.
      if he shoves i fold, if he calls im mostly good. if he folds im fine too.

      or should i be calling AQ OOP w/o initiative to play aginst his whole range?

      I would say that 4-bet/fold is probably better.

      However i wouldn't say that if he calls our 4-bet we are that much ahead. He's mostly on AQ+, big pairs (TT+).

      If you have any reads on his postflop tendencies we can also call preflop but without them I prefer a 4-bet bluff.
