      24/21/5.4. fold to 3b 43(7). raise 3b 29(7). 200 hands.

      Shove fine here? Should I consider to go for a smallish 5b, obviously not folding to push?

      A smallish 5bet makes more sense if he had made a really small 4bet, like 2.80. Then you can just 5bet to 5$ and call it off (and have a min5betting bluff range as well).

      When your opponent makes a 4bet size of ~20bb or more, you should probably just shove or fold.

      If he is 4bet/calling 66 here, it probably means that he is going to 4bet bluff a ton as well, so shoving AQ here seems really standard.
