      He started recently to 3bet me a lot. I didn't 4bet, because he folds often to 4bet, which isn't that bad, but I thought there may be more value in just calling. Should I 4bet my top range as well to balance my 4bet bluffs or do you think he is not going to notice?

      As played I dont know if he barrels with bluffs in 3bet pots, so I decided to miniraise him, to make him confused. Also if he folds to miniraise here it will make my x/r bluffs cheap.

      When he pushes I don't think I should fold tptk, even though it's very hard for me to tell what hands he is playing like that.

      Hi Jozio0506,

      What's your plan when you don't hit the flop (which is very very often)?

      IMO, given the positions and the fact that you will be OOP this should be a 4-bet or just a fold. You will lose a lot more money just calling and then playing postflop with offsuite AK, no position and no initiative (unless you have some solid reads about his postflop stats).

      As played, once you raise you can't really fold especially after a minraise.

      I was thinking that I'll try x/raising if the board gives some equity, or donkbetting. I'm afraid that when I 4bet I'm isolating myself on JJ+,AK - is this incorrect?

      Would you call his 3bet with AK suited here?
