      OnGame - $0.50 NL FAST (5 max) - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $249.65 (VPIP: 58.97, PFR: 43.59, 3Bet Preflop: 36.84, Hands: 42)
      Hero (SB): $138.00
      BB: $50.00 (VPIP: 34.65, PFR: 30.69, 3Bet Preflop: 13.51, Hands: 105)
      CO: $44.75 (VPIP: 20.50, PFR: 11.80, 3Bet Preflop: 7.81, Hands: 166)

      Hero posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.75) Hero has Q:heart: A:club:

      fold, BTN raises to $1.50, Hero raises to $5.25, fold, BTN raises to $16.25, Hero raises to $138.00 and is all-in...

      As you can see from villain's stats, he is veeery aggresive. AQo is one of the strongest hands I probably couldnt call profitably, plus I have blockers, so I think its a good spot to bluff. I opted for a push instead of raise 33$/fold, since I have no idea what range does he have for flatcall and for 6bet.

      Fast fold, 5max table.

      Hi Meepwn,

      I think that this is quite loose. Our hand/line looks nothing like AA so I can see villain hero calling 250 BB deep with many hands that we don't do great against.

      His 4-bet is also somewhat big but it's understandable given the stacks.

      Our plan should be made before we even make the 3-bet. I think that shoving here is just spew versus somewhat unknown opponent. I much more prefer 5-bet bluffing smaller because you can actually represent more value.
