      23/19/4.2k squeeze 12.4

      I thought he had bluff squeeze range so I bluff 4b.
      and on flop, I thought I could make KK,QQ fold.

      and river , I never think I can win when I check.How about this shove?

      Hi.

      Preflop: Don't bluff 4bet with this hand. You either call or fold or 4bet for value and call it off. You don't have blockers here so this is just not a good candidate to use as a 4b bluff.

      Flop: We know his preflop range is mostly AQ and 88-QQ. I would just bet slightly smaller, 40% of the pot should suffice. Once he calls I'm putting him on an Ace and I'm giving up.

      Your line on the River doesn't make too much sense. You rarely have 5X here and you would probably shove the Turn a lot with hearts. So I don't think you rep anything.

      In villain's shoes I am never folding any Ace to you (which I already mentioned, is his most likely hand after calling Flop).

      Thanks.
