      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: How much has villain 3-bet in the blinds? Considering he is short we have a lot less flexibility postflop.

      Although it appears that villain's stack is bigger than what is shown in the first few rows as he put in 79.5 BB by the end of that. Could you double check his stack?

      If he is a full stack I prefer to 4-bet/fold in this spot as a bluff. Calling with a dominated hand when we know nothing about villain isn't great. AJs would be an easier call.

      As played do you really expect villain to bet that blank turn without betting the river? Our decision should come there and not the river.
