      I 4bet here as bluff with 2 blockers, and I expect bu to 3bet wide against fish mp. Should I raise larger?

      When he calls I put him on AQ+, TT, 99, JJ, maybe AJs. His stats on small sample shows he is fishy, so maybe I could include more hands.

      I guess I made a mistake with cbet flop ? It is good that I have backdoor flush, and straight, but he also hits this board.

      I planned to give up on turn. Then I was unsure, if I should bet again, on check? When I check I expect him to bluff AK, check back AJ, maybe bluff TT, 99, ATs. So when he bets so big, I think I should fold. If I believe I am ahead, is it better shove, or call and check river? Because when I shove, I get all the money from AK, AJ, TT, some draws because he is commited, and if I just call I lose against sets and he checks weaker. I think he could bet so big only with sets, because he would be afraid with AQ, AJ that I have KK+.

      Preflop I would usually make it 16-17BB being OOP and a bit over 100bb deep.

      Postflop, I dislike the cbet again. It just hits your opponent's range very well. This time you have more outs though imo, with better BD straight and the BD flush. I still believe it to be a check/fold.. your opponent definitely has QQ+ in his range still which won't fold.

      I do have to bring up sizing though. I think you should be a bit bigger on the flop so you have a turn shove OR bet quite a bit smaller and leave yourself 3 barrels. I would opt for first option given the board but if your range hits the board well and you want cheap bluffs you can go with smaller bets and barreling.

      When you get to the turn, I prefer shoving for value.. JT, AJ, KJ and all that stuff checks back but if you shove they usually have a call.
