      What range would you 4bet/call here? I am doing this by default vs aggro 3better with JJ+, AK. Would it be ok 88+, AK because his sizing looks as AK? Is it too weak assumption?

      Hi.

      Preflop: About the size, his squeeze is almost as big as a 4bet. Jamming directly could be an option. I suppose click-it-back 4bet is also fine but it should be the very smallest 4bet and not 2X which is too large IMO.

      Just stick to JJ+/AK by default. He is a 21/18/7 player, he doesn't seem too crazy and you are usually flipping with TT vs stuff like AJ/KQ/AQ.

      Im really surprised to see 55 here, I think it's a terrible play. With so many players in the hand he's definitely better off set-mining in a 4way pot.

      I think it was not possilble to 4bet smaller than 2x. Is it dependend on poker site (fishy question :) ).

      I prefer allways to 4bet or 5bet min, because when I shove he can hardly call with so weak hand, and this way he can go all in and not pay attention that I am comitted.

      I'm not sure if this is how you calculate it.
      3->19, you have to call 16 more, and then you can raise 16 on top, so the min size is 19 + 19 + 3 = 35. I could be wrong though.

      As a general guideline I would usually push directly vs 4bets 20bb or larger, and maybe min5bet or call a lot vs 4bets which are smaller than 20bb.
