      Very loose 4bet call obviously but the guy was 3betting me basically every single BTN raise, (I didn't raise every BTN in fact I tightened up but he is just defending his blinds like a madman). I tried two $6 4bet bluffs w Axs cos he's way outta line and he just shipped over both of them, and I can't call of course. I am not turning my hand into a bluff at this point but 4betting for value and calling off because of pot odds, at this point I am 100% sure he's shoving worse.

      If you are expecting him to make wide shove here, it is obviously a good call, but I would prefer something like 88+ here. But I still think it is OK.
      And also, I don't like your 4bet sizing, even if we are oop, I would 4bet 5.25-5.5 and ip 4.5. To make my bluffs cheaper.

      Nice hand. Not much to say, pretty standard vs someone who is jamming with AXs and 22-66. By having this in our 4betting range here we are taking a stand and he will be forced to tighten up.

      I dont like calling 77 oop as it plays really poorly.

      Pot odds we get = 21/54 = 39%. If we have 39%+ equity vs his pushing range then the fourbet is good.
