      Is my min 5 bet ok as answer to his min 4 bet? BU should steal wide, and players often 4bet bluff with AQ, and similar, and I want him to call me with that.

      Flop I was happy that he called preflop, started writting note because it dissapears when he folds, and then didn't have time to cbet :) I would cbet 25BB, is it ok?

      I put him on TT--QQ, AK, AQ, because AA he would push preflop I was commited with 7$ in.

      I like to see a min5bet, not so big so it can show you can fold if you get shoved on. 35BB is kind of commiting imo.

      Postflop, timing out was good for you imo.. You looked like disconnected but also would check legitimately... You crush his range, he will shove any pair to protect vs AK imo.. you never get away from your hand. If you want to cbet, I'd bet probably about 10BB.. The pot is already huge, there's no draw on the flop, you are just playing a super strong range and don't need to bet bigger for any reason imo.
