      450 BB, 24VP, PFR 19, 3b 4, from BB 10, 4bet+ 1/19

      Is call OOP ok? We are a bit deep, and I didn't want to isolate against KK+ against his tight range.
      Is river bet size ok? I wanted to get value from J, T, maybe he sometimes calls AK because it looks like bluff considering there is flush.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: How exactly did you calculate that he only has a KK+ shoving range? Just because his 4-bet range is tighter over the sample it doesn't mean that he can't 3-bet/5-bet AK, JJ+. So unless we have a good reason to think that he would fold BTN vs SB AK to a 4-bet I would just 4-bet here.

      Remember part of the profit of the 4-bet is collecting the dead money.

      As played I would raise the flop and I would not bet that river that huge unless you think villain can call light or has called light before. Our hand looks polarized but most will put you on the nuts and fold.
