      Fi was playing 18/15/15.6%3bet and 25% 3bet vs hero(not sure about sample here, can't find it for some reason in the hud popup). hands: 135

      Like 10 seconds earlier I 4bet him in the exact same spot (bvb) and made him fold. He should reckon me because of my avatar. So in this spot I 4b with the intention of pushing all in vs a small 5b, not sure if it's too spewy to call vs a push(??) despite the hand before and his aggressiveness.

      Other then that, I have no reads on him.

      When he calls, should I c-bet here? Not sure what he could have, maybe AJ,AQ,99-JJ, sometimes slowplayed monsters?

      Preflop: Don't like the idea of 4bet/calling with ATo. It requires an insanely aggressive dynamic which I doubt you have. Basically he should be shoving with a worse hand on average. Note that 22-AA, AJ+ all beats you, so you should be having him shoving a whole lot of worse Aces and some KX hands like KJ KQ.

      You can always call the 3b OOP if you think his range is really wide or even just 4bet AT as a bluff and fold to a 5b.

      Flop: You can consider just giving up here. His range contains many QX and pocketpair hands. But if you think his range for calling your 4bet is much wider, including some AXs, suited connectors like 78s, then you can just bet.

      Thing abt this flop is that JTs T9s J9s all have gutshots and they aren't folding. The mid pocketpairs are definitely calling once too.

      About the Flop size, I think it's a little too large. Betting 3.50 (40% of the pot) should suffice.
