      Should I shove after his min 3bet? Or raise bigger? Is it ok to take a free card on turn and give up? I dont think that he could fold Qx, Jx.

      Hey GingerKid,

      No doubt raising bigger or shoving would be profitable vs this type of opponent. It's likely keeping the pot smaller preflop will have a higher expectation because you can get your money in at a point with higher equity while simultaneously limiting variance. 4betting small is ok, but so is flatting and making your decisions postflop where your edge is higher.

      Cbet flop is fine, presumably sometimes villain folds. He hardly ever needs to fold for this to be a profitable cbet.

      Turn check back is fine. Your equity is slashed in half, villain evidently holds the slightly stronger part of his range, and you have probably zero fold equity. 2nd barreling would be good if you had fold-equity.

      River is fine.
