      Villain plays TAG-style over 60 hands and already restealed ones before vs me. I have also 3bet him like 3 times and won most pot I think.

      19/16 he plays over 50 hands.

      So this hand goes into my 4bet/bluffrange. Accidently I made it 10$ while I normally make it $9 here. Anddd he calls.

      His range? Some slowplays, some AQ, TT, JJ sometimes.. Maybe TJs, QJs ones in a while.

      On the flop I went for potcontrol. On the turn I have to call right? Although the bet is pretty big

      Will answer last question first: On the turn he bets big enough to prepare stacks so you have to call blank rivers if you call turn. To me it's clear I am facing a river bet 90% of the time so I would not call the turn without knowing I can call that too.

      Your preflop 4bet is fine, and I was gonna say your sizing is a bit big. I also prefer 18bb here like you usually do, sometimes you can go even lower and have a 4bet/6bet range since he will now be able to 5bet/fold.

      Postflop, I think his range won't have that many slowplays (you block some of those). It should be some overs and hands he 3bet that considered themselves good enough to call preflop. I suggest cbetting almost 100% of your range in a 4bet and do so with a small sizing. It has many benefits: thin valu with such a hand, cheap bluffs, can construct barreling ranges so you can end up betting 2 streets and checking back rivers when you want to with a hand like yours.
