      Hi,

      After he raised, I was like "bitch you're not stealing from me", but he was like "bitch you're not 3beting me", and then I was like "F U man" and I shoved it. An after the showdown I went into the bathroom and cried under the shower for an hour.

      Jokes aside, is it ok, to shove here, what can his range be with that play?

      that story :D

      about his range...
      on nl5 as a standard you won't really be seeing a lot of 4bet bluffing and the most likely range by far is QQ+, AK. next up is KK+ :P

      some people argue for 3bet/folding since he can call a lot worse, but his 4bet range will be mostly nutted.
      i kinda agree, but i don't think shoving given these positions can ever be a huge mistake. you are doing ok against AK+, QQ and starting to create an aggressive dynamic is mostly a good thing if you are one of the better players. :f_biggrin:
