      Hero wins 213.68 BB

      He is unknown but his sqeeze size looks fishy, and it is sometimes KK+ so I am not sure if I should stack vs him? Maybe better call min sqeez and play for smaller pot? Still his VPiP is 75% on 9 hands which means probably that he is aggro fish so I decided to 4bet/call.
      Flop is horrible, so I just call, I dont win versus too many hands that want to stack off. IS turn playing for stacks ok? I am only behind straights?

      Preflop: Loose numbers = easy 4bet for value. I think you are making it way too small and you are losing value. Make it 15BB and this is a snap all-in. I'm sure he can shove with hands worse than QQ here.

      Flop: You HAVE to raise here. Firstly, there's so much value. Secondly, think about the number of turn cards which are ugly for you. Any A/K/8/9/J (~35-40% of the deck). It's not as though he is likely to have nothing here and it's not as though we cannot raise for value here. This is a snap raise for value and a very easy turn push.

      Flop is not horrible here. You are not thinking about preflop ranges. This is not your typical reg and he's not going to have 77/TT/99/JJ here all the time. He plays 70% of hands preflop. He's gonna have every broadway in his range, including AK/AQ/KQ/AJ/KJ/QJ, all of which are putting in a lot more money when you do raise the Flop.
