      BTN: $5.02 (100.4 bb)
      SB: $5 (100 bb)
      Hero (BB): $5.38 (107.6 bb)
      UTG: $11.19 (223.8 bb)
      MP: $5.17 (103.4 bb)
      CO: $5.34 (106.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q A
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.15, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.55, BTN raises to $5.02, Hero calls $4.47

      Flop: ($10.06) J J K (2 players)
      Turn: ($10.06) 4 (2 players)
      River: ($10.06) 4 (2 players)

      Villain is 19/19 over 50 hands.

      My plan here was to play 3bet/broke, considering it's BB vs BU. Of course I wouldn't be too happy if he would call my 5bet, but with fold equity and what not I think playing 3bet/broke here should be profitable.

      But when he decides to just 4bet shove here, I think he is certainly on a capped range. Playing hands like QQ+ this way makes no sense. He could certainly have AK here, but probably also hands like 77, maybe AJs or even a random KQ.

      I find it really tough to put people on a reasonable range when they do things like this. Since I didn't expect him to do this with a very strong hand though, I decided to call.

      However, what would be a realistic range to give villain here, and with what range would you call the shove?

      Hey Tino,

      I think villain's range is usually smth like TT+. The range I gave is just an estimate so he could have KQ, AJs sometimes ofc. Given the odds, unless you can confidently exclude a good amount of QQ+ combos, I think it's a fold given the odds of facing pair or better vs your hand.
