      Hi Evante,

      Preflop: What type of dynamic do you have?

      He is a midstack that 3-bets us in the BTN vs CO so his range is really wide. Now, given his stack, there is no way we can 4-bet fold even if we do it as a bluff because most hands will have enough equity to call.

      If you want to be able to still 4-bet fold we can play around with smaller, 16 BB 4-bets which would leave 40 BB behind and thus giving us 35% pot odds vs a shove (so we can 4-bet/fold more hands).

      Otherwise we might as well make it larger or just shove.

      Postflop: As played we have to check/fold without info on his 4-bet call.

      we have been 3betting each other quite abit

      Actually i was prepared to go broke pre.

      i am sure this is not the first time he called my 4bet

      so after he called my 4bet is best that i let go?

      Unless you can put him on a range and compare your equity versus it I would say yes.

      I don't think we can get the money in profitably on that flop.

      Sir, so you suggest, I should always shove preflop if i decide to ever 4bet this guy?

      No, far from it.

      In fact I'd keep 4-bets smaller especially since I wouldn't expect to get called often (it's really surprising that he called and most likely slow played).

      Would there be any value in a direct shove? You would take away the chance for him to shove lighter, if he wants to.
