      After his min raise, i don`t think i can fold. He can have TT/JJ and QQ+ trapping preflop. I don`t know if he can be bluffing with overcards like AQ/AK, but i guess is possible.

      I don`t really want to call OOP and let him see turn+river cheap. If A or K hits i can be behind and he might not want to stack off with TT/JJ, so i decided to just click it back and call a shove?

      He is very loose pre and has more 9x combos than tt jj. Unless u think he does tthis wioth 88 77 etc.

      I dont mind ur play w 100bb but with 120bv im leaning more towards a call. Shoving can nv be too bad though. Shoving becomes better as the cards get lower.

      i'd raise more pf to $5 as alittle deep,i'd make it at least 4 with 100bb,its not a mistake for him to call $2.5 more with 89s here

      i think calling flop raise oop is not that bad
      regs should 4bet AK at least eventhough its 120bb deep as its blinds war and we block Q,dunt think there r too many AQ KQ in his range. i'd just check call down if he bets on the turn and river
      i dunt think he would 3bet-broke with TT JJ here,that means our reraise otf couldnt get worse hands to call,and he only has 2 outs there which we dunt have to worry abt

      Preflop i don`t want ot 3bet big, because BTN was folding a lot and i want to bluff him cheap.

      BB was, most likely, a recreational player.
