      Hero wins 158 BB

      50 hands, VP 50, PFR 21, 3bet 15

      What is the best play against aggro fish? Is it better shove to look like bluff so maybe he calls AQ, or 4bet/call?

      I don't like jamming here. Even a huge committing size of myabe 20-28 is way better than jamming. Jamming makes him fold all his semi-strong hands, but in general these loose aggro fishes tend to flat 4bets with a super wide range of weak hands.

      Let's say you make it 22bb and he calls. He will have 60bb left, pot would be around 45bb. That's only slightly more than a pot size bet left.

      We can just check on most dry flops and let him bluff, even if we do not hit. AK high is going to be good very often vs a wide range.
