      iPoker - $0.50 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BB): 158.02 BB
      CO: 112.68 BB (VPIP: 24.57, PFR: 17.18, 3Bet Preflop: 7.46, Hands: 596)
      BTN: 123.94 BB (VPIP: 23.69, PFR: 20.00, 3Bet Preflop: 8.62, Hands: 1,833)
      SB: 196.5 BB (VPIP: 18.35, PFR: 14.95, 3Bet Preflop: 4.17, Hands: 114)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:club: K:heart:

      fold, BTN raises to 2.5 BB, fold, Hero raises to 8 BB, BTN raises to 20 BB, Hero raises to 34 BB, BTN raises to 123.94 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 89.94 BB

      Flop: (248.38 BB, 2 players) T:heart: 6:heart: J:spade:

      Turn: (248.38 BB, 2 players) J:diamond:

      River: (248.38 BB, 2 players) Q:spade:

      Hero shows K:club: K:heart: (Two Pair, Kings and Jacks) (Pre 81%, Flop 89%, Turn 95%)
      BTN shows 9:club: 9:diamond: (Two Pair, Jacks and Nines) (Pre 19%, Flop 11%, Turn 5%)
      Hero wins 244.38 BB

      He opens 56% bu, and 4bets 42% from bu, never calls.
      I usually 3bet larger here, 9bb, but I found that 8bb works the same way vs him since he anyway doesnt call.
      When his range is so wide, is it better 5bet min, shove, or call 4bet?

      Hi GingerKid,

      Preflop: We are a bit deeper here so I actually like your small 5-bet because it can induce a lot.

      Villain may have already plan to stack off with 99 but I think that you can definitely induce here as well.
