      Villain makes a lot of mistakes, including frequent min-raises preflop, so I think my 4-bet is okay and I made it with the intention of him calling not folding. I bet 1/2 pot to hopefully induce some kind of raise, he probably thinks my 4b preflop is a bluff and I've seen him shove TP+ postflop. Most his min raises have been suited connectors/suited high card x hands, 45 is a possibility but probably only 45s or a set for monsters here. QQ+ as well although I think he's getting that in preflop and 3-betting bigger.

      Hi Sketchzr,

      Preflop: 4-bet for value looks fine and since we are deeper we should expect a lot more calls so we can consider making it larger. I still feel that 150 BB deep we have to fold to a shove (unless he has been seen shoving light).

      Postflop: The flop is an easy bet/call IMO given the fact that most of his strong hands would most likely min raise or just call.

      And since you've seen him overvalue TP or overpairs I like our play. Well done.

      Thanks, I think I would consider calling a shove, would be a close call though. Given he overplays his hands in general and min-raises a lot preflop he could be stacking off pretty light preflop? Like AQs+ AKo 88+ maybe but even then I'm flipping vs. his range with only a 2% edge.

      We haven't actually seen him overplay although we can assume he might. And since even based on this assumption our equity is not that great I would look for the fold (because our assumption is hitting towards best case scenario).
