      I was 3 betting him few times in a short times, he folded and now he 4bets. steals 56% bu, 4bets 16%. Is it ok 5bet min, I am doing this as a bluff only vs bu because size is smaller and I am not commited. I do 5bet min each time with hands I am going all in. Is it ok to cbet flop small or check flop since pot is huge?

      Preflop: I usually use 20bb as the cutoff point for whether to have a min5b range OOP or not. I think it's fine

      Flop: I would cbet most of my range here so I don't like checking this hand. Maybe with AK/AQ you can opt for a bluff catching line instead because betting has little/no value most of the time vs a range which has very few pairs.

      Just bet 25-30% pot with your entire range. If you do choose to bet AQ/AK you should bet/call the flop for sure cos he reps nothing.
