      I guess my cold 4bet is bit too big, it looks like for value.

      On flop he has many Ax, but maybe he has some air also because at least he does not fold much to 3bets.

      Not much value in betting flop. I guess. Check to reeavaluate and let him bluffs, so I bluffcatch when he uses this sizing. He migt put me on Ax also so stop barreling turn.

      SO on turn I fold, assume he is strong.

      Hey SpeedFanatic,

      Given that you are a bit deep, I don't mind making a 4bet bigger than a regular one but 22bb is probably overdoing it.. I would make it about 18-19bb, so around 3.6-3.8

      Postflop seems OK to me, I would play the same. Both your ranges are Ax heavy. I would actually check just about all my 4betting range here because if I have Ax or better, my opponent can't have much and if I have worse, I can't value bet. :) I do cbet some Ax to balance the bluffs I would sometimes cbet but there are not that many in a 4bet pot on Axx.
