      This is a good 4bet spot, i think. His bb and sb 3b are 10% and notecaddy said he 3bet with 56s once.

      4bet 1.5? and fod if he shoves?

      Why would you want to 4bet TT and fold to a shove? I'm assuming that villain is rarely calling the 4b with worse and is mostly going to 5bet push or fold.

      That would mean that you are turning TT into a bluff. IF you want to use hands to 4bet bluff with, you might as well use hands that have blockers (AT, KQ etc). These hands block your opponent's value combos. For example when we have an ace ourselves, it is 50% less likely that our opponent will have AA, and 25% less likely that he will have AK.

      I would call TT here and play some flops, probably bluff catching on non A/K high flops once and deciding on future streets. Don't forget you can hit sets sometimes.

      So simple, yet I never thought of it. Learned something new.
