      I was hoping to get your input into how to construct a 5 betting range vs a min 4 bet.

      The villain steals 67% (67) from the BTN. Calls a resteal 40% (20) and 4 bets 25% (20). IMO the villain is one of the tougher players at 50nl speed, with his general postflop game being aggressive but not spew aggressive.

      Would also like your opinion of what 3 betting range we should use given these stats.

      Currently my 3 betting range is something like this:

      Value: TT+, AQo+, AKs
      BLUFF: A5s-A2s, A9s, K9s, Q9s, J9s, T8s, 97s, 87s, 86s, 76s, KJo

      I'm asking a lot so thanks in advance :)

      BB: $50.75 (101.5 bb)
      UTG: $23.75 (47.5 bb)
      MP: $53.61 (107.2 bb)
      CO: $49 (98 bb)
      BTN: $52.50 (105 bb)
      Hero (SB): $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with XX
      3 folds, BTN raises to $1, Hero raises to $3.75, BB folds, BTN raises to $7, Hero ?

      Do u have positional 4bet? .25 x 67 = 16.75% range. Whats his fold to 5bet? The higher it is the more bluffs u wanna use in your range.

      Assuming he folds half the time we should probably split our range into 50% value and air. I dont like 5betting axs or kjo here - odds are way too good that we should call those. Its fine to 5b hands with poorer playability though.

      We probably want to 5bet 50% of his 4b range so thats around 8 5% of hands. Tt and aq + is around 4.7% so thats approximately half of that range, use another 4.5% worth od bluffs with hands that are harder to call with (k9s comes to mind)
