      Hi Staselu,

      Preflop: looks fine and 4-bet size can be slightly bigger as we have 112 BBs and his 3-bet is 11 BBs.

      Postflop: Once we calls our 4-bet I don't mind cbetting the flop and the size is fine as well. His 4-bet call range is most likely pairs like TT-QQ and AK/AQ so we can bet on the flop to make him fold his overcards.

      Once he calls the flop I would consider checking the turn to give his pairs a chance to pay us off. Shoving on the A looks strong and I'm afraid that most pairs fold.
