      Hi.

      Preflop: He would shove 99 pre? Easy 4bet with AK. We can cooler AJ and AQ and AXs. You are just taking a suboptimal line with AKo here, which doesn't play all that great postflop but is a relatively strong hand preflop.

      Based on his stats, I don't think you should be calling preflop.

      Turn: What's his river barrel? Why don't you just call here and play the River? Would he always bluff?

      When you shove here he's never folding JX/TX IMO.

      When he bets turn, he is always shoving, I didnt see him giving up. And he could do it with 33, the same way as he did it with 99. I was trying to fold his draw, or bottom pair as was the case, but he obviously read my hand well.

      I agree about preflop that I should 4bet. 2 hands later, I 4bet versus him AK and he went all in with AJ, and 88, but I lost both times. It seems he is not folding to 4bet, but I think it is good.

      I agree. It is strange that he was even barreling bottom pair here, and then snap calling shove, so I can just fold his worse hands which he shoves on river.
