      couple questions about this hand... firstly, villain is 27/20 over 16 hands so barely a sample. seen him around a couple of times and thought he was a reg but given his stack size i'd say he's more fishy.

      1) how is my 4bet sizing? and should i adjust it according to relative position?

      2) even though he is relatively unknown, when he squeezes should i be MORE or less inclined to get it in? i don't like calling his 3bet and allowing BU to come along with some speculative hand. so i 4bet and planned to ship it in.

      3) im thinking my bet is too big here. such a dry flop and im pretty certain i have the best hand. i fired out my bet without properly thinking about sizing, just treating it with a similar sizing as i do 3bet pots. should i have bet ~$4 and let him call or even induce a bluff raise?

      Hello, preflop seems fine, maybe we can make it 6,5 but it wont probably make the difference. In these spots we can cbet very thinly cause we are getting it in by river anyway. Maybe we can even skip cbet to underrepresent our hand and let him try bluff or let him call lighter on later streets
