      This hand I felt I played poorly. I sort of panicked when I saw the Ace on the flop and gave up on the hand because I couldn't see him folding much and was taking too much time to make my move.

      Should I have just called the 4bet and ch/f flop or 5bet shove pre because I was OOP?
      As played should I be shoving on this flop?
      Post hand thoughts: I guess he would have shoved pre with AA so that leaves him with AK, KK, QQ maybe JJ if he's LAG.

      Preflop: I don't like this 5bet size. You either make it smaller, or you jam here. This is a size which tells your opponent that you are obviously committed. If you make it 7 you could still have a bluffing range here and 5b/fold.

      Given that he only put in 18bb I think the small 5bet option is good here. But in general if the 4bet size is 20bb or more I would just jam or fold for 100bb.

      Flop: I will check and never fold. Pot is way too large.
