      Hi.

      Preflop: I really dislike this size with both value and air. With air he just doesn't fold at all for such great odds. With value hands you are allowing him to defend a lot of hands profitably. Even 5$ in this case (2X) is way too small since his 3bet size is only 2.5X. You should make it 6.25$ at the very least (only 12bb which is way too small), maybe even 3X (7.50$).

      Flop: His range is so wide here based on your bet size. I would just bet and hope to fold out mid pairs and mid suited connectors like 98s.

      Turn: Bet here now with a combo draw

      Did you saw that he is mss?
      Im making lots of click it back 4bets against MSS, they stack off pretty much always in the flop with overcards and any pair, they are making really big mistakes, thats why i like the small 4bet vs them, and if im making the standard size it gets very expensive against mss and i wouldnt be able to 4bet bluff them much.
