      Hi, I was playing with villain on 3 tables at the time, heads up on 2 as we were trying to start tables. He seemed ok but a real non-beleiver and was calling me down really light in some 100bb pots. I had just called him down with K high on another table and was right ( :coolface: ) and wasn't sure if that might have tilted him a little as this hand came up right after. Being slightly deeper, what would be the default play vs this guy do you think? Is shoving ok, maybe calling. He raised pretty big so I wasn't sure. Let me know what you think.

      It's a spot where it really depends on your dynamic. It's ofc possible he is tilted.. That said, it's 150bb deep and he cold 4bets quite big.. in 375 hands, what is his cold 4bet? I don't give people credit to bluffing this big.

      Assuming he is quite loose and aggro pre like the stats show as well, you can't be much wrong by not folding here but at the same time shoving seems a bit spewy. That is because you would risk 140bb to win around 40bb and you also have room to create a 5bet/fold range.

      I personally think his 4bet size is not good and would go with a fold. Quite likely that if he is bluffing this sizing you can auto-exploit it with 5betting QQ+, AK and some Ax bluffs. JJ could arguably be a call IP but you need to know who you're playing against..
