      Last hand which I posted he 3betted against UTG I 4bet large and he called. So this time I expected him to call and it would be hard to play when I miss OOP, so I go direct all in, if he folds nice, if he calls even better.

      If he calls with AXs then obviously shoving is the best play. But i think making smaller 4bets gets him to continue with way more hands.

      I prefer 4betting to a committing amt to like 35bb. Pot will have 70bb and we will have 65bb left and we can checkcall our stack off on almost any runout w AK high.
