      So villain is a regular i have 106 hands with him.He has a 12 % 3bet from blinds and 15 % over all.He plays 22 19 with AF of 2.So pf QJs against his range it's the bottom of my range so i did not called i 4 bet.He calls the 4bet !! wow !!.I put this in equilab and gave him a range like 88+,AJs+,KQs,AKo and it's 50 50.Bad mistake for me to go all in.What should i do pf? And in the situation of the flop should i ch back flop fold turn.

      First of all I wouldn't pay tooo much attention to his 3bet stats over this sample. I think semideep like we are QJs plays decent postflop so I don't mind calling.

      I think the range you give him postflop is too linear, imo it should be much more polarized. I expect him to flat a bunch of the more speculative hands you included in the range, like 88 and AJs, and as I said to 3bet more polarized. Once he calls the 4bet I give him some combos of slowplayed monsters and hands that play decent postflop that he chose to 3bet bluff with (something like J8s).

      With so much money in the pot I like just betting and getting it in, we have good equity against pretty much anything.
