      The question I have here is with flop sizing in a 4-bet pot.

      Pre is obviously standard, but I've read somewhere that it's normal to bet quite small on the flop in 4-bet pots given that a decent portion of our stack is already in the pot and we plan to get it in by the turn anyway. We also have an overbet to get in OTF, so shoving the flop could miss a lot of value.

      Villain - 10/10/Agg Freq 33% in 31 hands, so not fishy stats. I thought he maybe had AK with heart FD when he calls the flop bet. I'd be VERY, VERY surprised if he has a flush by the turn because he can't have AhKh! A 10/10 surely doesn't call a 4-bet with KhQh for example against UTG, but even in the worst case I still have a few outs, so it's OK to get it in OTT?

      For these reasons, I went for the 1/3 pot flop bet, then an easy shove OTT with just under 1/2 pot.
