      87 hands VPiP 38, 3bet 13.

      He is the guy who called my sqeeze with A8o and call call call AQJ55
      I 3betted him after that 4 times in a row with AT and similar and he was always calling preflop folding flop.
      This time I think he got tilted with his 4bet, so is my push appropriate here?

      Unfortunately I can't say much.

      The hand is decent for a sort of thin bluff shove. This action though requires a feel for the dynamic between you guys which I obviously don't know the full extent of. I just know he is a station postflop from the A8 vs KT hand. He could indeed be tilting so shoving makes sense but I cannot say a clear yes or no here. It's a reasonable hand to do it with, you block AA, AK, JJ, you have some marginal equity when called by his value range. Whether or not the situation is the best for it, I can't really say.

             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    36.31%  35.24%   1.07% { AcJd }
      MP3    63.69%  62.62%   1.07% { 99+, AQs+, KQs, AQo+, KQo }

      You basically need to know he is very likely to bluff given the history and well, if you know he calls KTo, you obviously have a value shove. :)
