      Before vs reggs I was from time to time 3bet/shove with A2-A5s, 88+ range from blinds vs BU, and vs MP JJ+, AK. This guy saw me shoving light 2 times, and I noticed he adapted by 4bet/calling light. Also other reggs started doing the same somehow in the same time.
      Now I excluded completely from my range bluffs, and 3bet only JJ+, AK, and suited garbage which I fold to 4bet. They still go 4bet/call with AJ+, and noticed 99+ (never saw weaker, AJ only few times from BU vs bb).
      So vs that range, is it ok to shove JJ+, AK, or include TT?
      They will probably notice soon that I readjusted and they will adjust, so should I again start bluff shoving with range I described, and play this way in circle?
      I think it is a good spot for me, because I control when do I switch from one strategy to other.

      MP vs BU you´re not folding AK, so getting all-in pre is fine.
      Since they get all-in light I would definitively 3-bet/shoveTT+ and likely include AQ+ (if their 4-bet/call range has AJ)
      If they have caugght you 3-bet/shoving suited aces then likely they would not play too tight against you, so I would not really 5-bet shove suited Ax too often. And you always have option to flat 4-bets AA/KK if you feel they are 4-bet/folding too much

      best regards,
