      PartyGaming - $0.50 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      CO: $50.00 (VPIP: 26.84, PFR: 22.13, 3Bet Preflop: 6.44, Hands: 3,218)
      BTN: $69.99 (VPIP: 22.31, PFR: 17.99, 3Bet Preflop: 6.21, Hands: 1,687)
      SB: $26.34 (VPIP: 35.83, PFR: 8.56, 3Bet Preflop: 2.41, Hands: 196)
      Hero (BB): $109.54
      UTG: $50.00 (VPIP: 24.86, PFR: 18.92, 3Bet Preflop: 9.21, Hands: 377)

      SB posts SB $0.25, Hero posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.75) Hero has 9:spade: A:spade:

      fold, fold, BTN raises to $1.00, SB calls $0.75, Hero raises to $4.50, BTN raises to $11.00, fold, fold

      Villain folds to squeezes 75% but he has 4bet range on BTN 5% and I was 3betting him quite a bit.

      I was thinking could I make a small 5bet here, but I guess the fact that he folds so much to squeezes means I shouldnt.

      Folds a lot to squeeze, small 4bet%, I think we have a clear fold here. If you think he can 4bet you lightly because you 3bet him often, you could 3bet/5bet with a wider value range, like TT+,AQ+, which have good equity against his calling range, but not A9s. Also, if you don't min5bet with value hands you shouldn't do it as bluff.

      He's folding everything to squeezes and only 4betting premiums, tighter than 5‰ I'm guessing because it's 3 way and facing squeeze something like QQ+ AK maybe add JJ and AQ but we are still dead and should fold. If you think he can 4bet wide we can add in more 5betshove hands that are stronger like what dark awi recommended.

      Should we be 5bet/shoving 1400bb deep?

      My inital thought was that this deep if he 4bet 5% his value range isnt wider that AK, QQ+,so he has more bluffs, but I guess he's just probably 4betting tighter when deeper and maybe not blffing at all.

      Another spot where I try to level myself :)

      I don't think he adjusts to the 140bb stack that much and if he does its with a tighter value range and we go in tighter against him. Do you think he's calling a 5bet shove with QQ AK? I will 5betshove AA KK against him
