      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      UTG: $77.67
      CO: $83.74
      Hero (BTN): $59.75
      SB: $50.25

      SB posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.75) Hero has 5:diamond: 5:club:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $1.20, SB raises to $4.50, fold, fold

      SB wins $2.90

      Villain 24/20, 3bet SBvsBTN 10%, fold to 4bet 71% (5/7), small sample but I think I can assume that he 3bet/folds fairly often.
      Good spot to 4bet bluff? What sizing should I choose 4,5 to 9,5 is ok?

      Just fold. We have so many other better hands to bluff with, mostly hands with some sort of blockers like KJo or A2o. While you may use some air hands to 4bet bluff in general when you think that the dynamic are in your favour (that SB's 3betting range in this exact scenario is going to be very bluf heavy), I think that if you want any sort of balanced gameplan in your game, you should only bluff with blockers.

      As for sizing, you just need to make it 9 or 9.50. Don't mind making it really small cos even if he calls we can just cbet most flops.
