      hi.

      preflop: If we knew fish was 3betting a ton i would just 4b for value and to isolate him from MP

      flop: leading could be an option if ranges are wide but i dont mind just c/c

      turn: seems like a card where the PFR would bet at. I don't really want to c/r here. I would probably just lead and hope to get some folds, maybe I'll bluff the river on a heart.

      Fish is 3betting a lot, but dont know how wide he 5bets.

      Do I 4bet/fold?

      yeah u should do that with AJ/KQ. Fishes don't 5b light in general even if they 3b a ton. So we can continue gaining value from worse broadway and unpaired hands, and if he ships we know we are crushed.
